The Purchasing & Contracts Branch maintains a database of suppliers for all classes of commodities and services purchased by the Long Beach Unified School District. Suppliers in our database have an increased potential of being notified of our bids, but that does not guarantee that you will receive a bid notice. The following link may be used to access our Bidder Database: Bidder Database, PlanetBids (TM).
During registration, you will be asked to select certain commodity codes. The commodity code section is particularly important because the District uses them when searching for suppliers/vendors who sell a specific product or service. Please take the opportunity to include all of the commodity codes that reflect your company's merchandise and/or services. The following link may be used to access the full list of commodity codes currently used by the District: Commodity Code List.
Following registration, you will receive a confirmation email. Please save or print this email as it contains your vendor number, your log in ID, and your password. If you do not receive this email, please check your junk email as it is often directed there depending on firewall settings.
Vendor qualifications are not reviewed before being added to the Bidder Database. There is no determination of whether your company is a responsible vendor. The Purchasing & Contracts Branch determines vendor responsibility on an individual case by case basis.
