The County of Ventura will be introducing a new vendor registration website for new and existing vendors.

The Vendor Self Service (VSS) application allows vendors a single entry point to conduct business with the County. It is a web based application that will allow vendors to:

  • Register and maintain vendor account information.
  • Search for, respond to, and track the status of Solicitations.
  • Submit online invoices.
  • View financial transaction (Orders, Scheduled Payments, and Disbursements) and history.

Only Existing County of Ventura Vendors will be able to register in VSS in June, 2015.

New vendor registration in VSS will not be available until July, 2015.

Please Note: An Existing Vendor is a vendor that has been issued a purchase order (of any type) by the County of Ventura after 07/01/2013.
