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.


Register with 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
