Vendor Information
The City of Norfolk welcomes all new and responsible vendors to participate in its procurement processes and compete for business opportunities available within the city.

To get started, suppliers should register its business in the city’s vendor registration system. This will allow vendors to identify the goods and services it wants to sell to the city and become part of the vendor database the city uses for its purchases and payments.

Part of the registration requires the vendor to provide a Tax Identification Number and W-9 Form.

If the vendor requires a Tax Exempt Form to exempt taxes for sales to the city, this form should be submitted to the purchasing agent for approval. Please contact our office for more details.
