Santa Monica contracts with PlanetBids to manage its purchasing process with vendors. Registration is simple and free. Many neighboring Southern California cities use the same service. Once you enter the PlanetBids site, you can view a general description of bid opportunities without registering. To receive email notifications about bid opportunities, and to download a bid information package, you must register as a vendor.
