Citizens makes purchases through a government procurement process that ensures ethical, competitive bidding and full compliance with Citizens' Policy and Florida Statutes.
- Competitive quotes are used to purchase goods and services valued at $2,500 to $34,999.
- Competitive solicitations are used for purchases valued at or more than $35,000. Visit our Solicitations page to view current solicitations.
- Contracts sources made available by the Florida Department of Management Services are frequently used by Citizens.
Vendors can register with Citizens to be notified about bidding opportunities that might be of interest. Citizens notifies registered vendors when a bidding opportunity matches the goods and/or services they are interested in providing.
You’ll need the following information to register with Citizens, if applicable:
- Incorporation information
- Florida Department of State/Division of Corporations document number
- Company information, including Florida Certified Business Entity certification information
- Contact information
If you are unsure whether your firm is registered with Citizens, search our Vendor Directory. If your firm already is listed and you need to change your contact information, email email@example.com.
If you decide to register using a Social Security Number (SSN) instead of an FEIN, read the SSN Notice for Vendors document.
Are you registering to provide Citizens with Claims Services? See contact information for firms contracted with Citizens to perform Independent Adjusting, Field Inspection and Fast Track Claims Services.
Any person who represents a principal seeking to influence Citizens’ policy and procurement decisions is required to register as a lobbyist with Citizens. If you are employed by a Citizens’ vendor, you must register as a lobbyist with Citizens if you meet both of the following criteria:
- You are employed by the vendor and one of your main or most significant job responsibilities is overseeing the Citizens contract
- You will engage in up-selling or attempts to otherwise persuade Citizens to buy additional goods or services not included in the purchase order
Lobbyist Registration Requirements for Vendor Employees
Once registered, you do not need to contact Citizens. You automatically will be notified about bidding opportunities that match the goods or services you provide.
Once you have registered with Citizens, you can login below to update your vendor information.
