Services Provided:  Procurement purchases goods and services for the County. To accomplish this task the following services are performed: process purchase requisitions; issue Purchase Orders (POs); issue and evaluate bids, proposals, and quotations; write bid specifications; draft contracts; manage surplus sales and auctions; provide purchasing training; verify licenses and insurance coverage; and process vendor applications and complaints. Procurement also manages the Convenience Copier Program.

The Exigis Riskworks application is the system that tracks vendor insurance compliance for the County of Ventura. Registered vendors will be contacted by email when a certificate is due for renewal.

County of Ventura Procurement Services is excited to add an e-Procurement Ventura County Vendor Information Portal (VCVIP), hosted by Bonfire.

Please note that starting February 15th, 2018 all new solicitations will be posted using the new portal. Our current VSS "vendor self-service" webpage will continue to be available for current projects and to view payments; however, it will NOT be available once current projects are concluded and then only available to view payments.

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.
