Welcome to the Procurement Services Group’s Vendor Registration website!
This website provides vendors information necessary to do business with the
Los Angeles Unified School District. A key feature of this website is to
allow vendors to register for upcoming procurements. Vendors may register
for all District procurements including commodities, general and
professional services, with the exception of
facilities procurements which are available
Before proceeding and clicking on the links provided for Vendor Registration and Vendor Forms, please take the time to read and understand the difference between Vendor Registration and receiving a LAUSD/District vendor number by submitting the Application for New Vendor, as they are not for the same purpose.
Vendor Registration allows current LAUSD vendors and those vendors interested in doing business with the District the opportunity to register to view current and upcoming procurements (Invitation for Bids and Request for Proposals) released by Procurement Services Division. Vendors may register for all District procurements including commodities, and general and professional services (with the exception of Facilities procurements which are available at http://www.laschools.org/employee/fcs/. A vendor number is NOT NEEDED to complete the vendor registration process. Vendor Registration allows any party interested the opportunity to view current and upcoming procurements and decide if they would like to submit a bid/proposal.
In order for a vendor to obtain a LAUSD vendor number, a District school or office MUST sponsor the request for processing the Application for New Vendor. To ensure that a District sponsor/requestor is making the request, the District school/office must also provide requested information on the Application for New Vendor along with the vendor's information. An incomplete application will not be processed. A vendor number is assigned through the District's financial system and is for facilitating the payment process against a contract and/or purchase order award. There is no "approved vendors list" and a vendor with a vendor number in LAUSD's financial system does not imply that a vendor is an "approved vendor" or guaranteed routine business. It simply indicates that LAUSD may have already done business with the vendor and a vendor number may already be available for District schools/offices to use.
Again, Vendor Registration is not the same as having a vendor number in LAUSD's financial system. Vendor Registration allows for the opportunity to view current and upcoming procurements, and a vendor number is for facilitating the payment process against a contract and/or purchase order after an award determination has been made.
