How to find Statewide Contracts and Vendors (for State Agencies and Local Government Agencies)

Statewide Commodity Contracts

  • Look at the grid to see if the contract is “open to local agencies” (yes/no)
  • Click on the contract to find the document called “User instructions” and go to the section for local agencies
  • Look at the contract documents to see if there is a “Post-Consumer Recycled Content certification form” or Excel list.

DGS Buying Green Website

  • Go to “Buyers”--find the contract category you are looking for.
  • The Contracts link to the DGS eProcurement/BidSync system where you will find the contract information, User Instructions and possibly a Post-Consumer Recycled Content certification form” or Excel list.

DGS eProcurement system - Search for contracts:

  • Read the User Instructions for minimum quantities required and if/how local government agencies can buy off the state contract.
  • Look at the contract documents to see if there is a Post-Consumer Recycled Content certification form or Excel list.

DGS eProcurement system - Finding vendors with SB/DVBE certification status:

  • Use keywords to find vendors that sell certain types of products (key words pull from the vendors’ self-reported profile).
  • Use zip codes to help find vendors near your agency or within a jurisdiction
