No bids will be accepted after the deadline, unless the response period is extended by the Court.

Proposer/bidder is solely responsible for ensuring that the full proposal or bid is received by the Court. The Court is not responsible for any delays in mailing via US Postal Service, common carriers or transmission by email or over the internet.

Other Inquiries:

The Court does not accept random solicitations. It only accepts specific inquiries about currently open Requests for Proposals and Quotes.

Vendor Registration:

Potential vendors are welcome to register as a supplier through Public Purchase. If you are already registered with Public Purchase, please skip this step and proceed directly to step two below. Once registered you will receive an activation email from advising that your account is activated (Note: be sure to add this email address to your contacts to avoid bid notifications being sent to your junk folder rather than your inbox). It can take up to 24 hours for your account to become active.

Once you have received your activation email from Public Purchase, log into the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo's Public Purchase homepage" and accept the terms and conditions of use. Even if you were previously registered with Public Purchase with another agency, you will need to register with the Superior Court of California, County of San Luis Obispo and select the National Institute of Government Procurement (NIGP) Commodity Codes that relate to your business in order to receive email notifications of future bid opportunities.

It is important that you complete step two of the registration process (register with San Luis Obispo County) or you will not receive notifications of upcoming bid opportunities. It is your responsibility to keep your vendor information updated in Public Purchase, particularly your contacts and email addresses.
