Doing Business with Calleguas

General Information

Calleguas is a municipality in the State of California and is subject to the purchasing regulations established by state law. As a public agency providing an essential service, it is Calleguas' responsibility to procure the most cost effective products and services available while maintaining system reliability. Therefore several criteria including compatibility, reliability, experience, availability and warranty may be considered in addition to price when determining the best option to meet the needs of our customers and ratepayers.

Sales Calls and Contacts

In order to keep administrative costs at a minimum, Calleguas does not meet with vendors. We encourage vendors to register through the online e-procurement system. Alternatively, product literature, catalogs and other pertinent information can be mailed to Calleguas or emailed to purchasing so that we may review and categorize the product or service that is offered. While Calleguas does not guarantee that a vendor will be contacted when their type of service or product is needed, every attempt will be made to notify all applicable vendors who have registered when Calleguas decides to procure through a bid process.

Goods and Services

Operations and Maintenance purchases over $50,000 are required to be executed through a public bid process and will be advertised and posted online. Many purchases under $50,000 are also bid in an attempt to obtain the best price available.

Goods and services are advertised and managed by Callegus' General Services Division

Formal solicitations for Goods and Services will be conducted through an online e-procurement system hosted by Bonfire. Vendors interested in participating in solicitations for goods and services should register through the online e-procurement system by clicking here for Vendor Registration.

Vendor Application

Registration is a simple process that takes only a few minutes. Calleguas believes that an online approach benefits suppliers by reducing the time and cost associated with printing and mailing proposals. In addition, it allows suppliers to search current solicitations, download documents, receive automatic bid notifications, ask questions, and receive answers, as well as submit bids at the click of a button up to the bid deadline.

Capital Improvement Projects

Calleguas' capital improvement projects are managed by its Engineering Department and designed by engineering consulting firms. Products are typically researched and specified by the consulting engineers rather than by Calleguas staff. It is recommended that vendors solicit the engineering firms or general contractors rather than Calleguas to have products or services considered for use.

Capital Improvement Projects are advertised in the Ventura County Star and posted on the Calleguas website. To see Capital Improvement Bid Opportunities click here.
