The Purchasing Division is responsible for the purchase of, or contract for, all supplies, materials, equipment, and contractual services required by the Town in accordance with the Town's Purchasing Ordinance.
Vendor Self Service Portal
The Vendor Self Service web portal provides vendors with a single entry point to register on the Town of Scarborough's vendor database. Within this database, registered vendors can identify the commodities/services that their company provides, scan for open bid opportunities, respond to solicitations, and receive bid amendments as well as notifications of awards. Registered vendors will also be able to view bid history and browse awards (pending and completed) as well as make inquiries into their own accounts.
Additional account information available to registered vendors includes:
- Purchase Order History
- 1099 Information
- Invoice History
- Check History
It is the Purchasing Division's duty to encourage full and open competition whenever practicable among potential contractors and suppliers by competitive bidding practices, to centralize purchasing and contracting to realize the economies resulting therefrom, and to seek maximum value for every tax dollar expended.
