Vendor Information

Vendor Registration

We appreciate your interest in partnering with Cleveland State Community College (CLSCC).  Vendors should register as a vendor/supplier to do business with the College. The vendor application form with commodity listing and W-9 form should be completed and submitted to the Purchasing and Contracts Department to register. Although registration is important in doing business with CLSCC, it does not guarantee that you will receive bids/request for proposals.  We ask that you visit the "Bid Opportunities" link on this website to view current bid opportunities and/or contact the Purchasing and Contracts Department after you have submitted your application to become familiar with the personnel that generally process the commodities that you wish to quote.
