To become a vendor with Wake County, we require certain information about you or your company. This information will be used to create a vendor record in our Financial System.  You must be set up as a vendor in our system before we can issue purchasing documents such as PO’s or contracts or before we can issue a payment.

Also, the Purchasing Department maintains a list of prospective bidders and the commodities they could provide to Wake County. If you are interested in doing business with Wake County you should consider registering in the Vendor Self Service (VSS) System and select the commodities your company provides.

Look up your Commodity Codes and identify the commodities you provide.
Please see our RFPs & Bids page to see a list of current bids.

It is the vendor’s responsibility to maintain and keep their VSS account current. Registration in VSS does not guarantee any level of business or bidding opportunities.
