E-PROCUREMENT SYSTEM IMPLEMENTATION
The City of Coral Gables Procurement Division is pleased to announce that we will now be using Public Purchase, a web based e-Procurement service. In order to begin or to continue
to receive bid notifications as a current supplier, you must register with this new system. This process will only take a few minutes. The two-step registration process with instructions is detailed below.
We are in the process of transitioning, and will make the move to Public Purchase completely effective December, 2016. Please register as soon as possible so that you have access to our bids and proposals, as well as the corresponding notifications.
Please proceed directly to Step 2 if you previously registered with Public Purchase.
1. Register with Public Purchase:
Click on the Public Purchase banner below to begin the registration process. Please note, it can take up to 24 hours for your account to become active. You will receive an email from email@example.com letting you know your account is activated. Be sure and add this email address to your contacts to avoid the bid notification emails being sent to your junk folder.
2. Register with the City of Coral Gables:
A. Once you have received your activation email from Public Purchase, log into www.publicpurchase.com and accept the terms and conditions of use.
B. Click on the "Tools" tab on the right hand side of the screen; click on the “Agencies” tab. Type in “City of Coral Gables” in the Agency name box (leave “new agency since” box blank). Click on “search” this will bring up the agency and click on “Register” on the right hand side of the City of Coral Gables.

It is important that this second part of the registration is complete or you will not receive notifications of upcoming opportunities from the City of Coral Gables. It is your responsibility to keep the information up to date, particularly the contacts and email addresses.
Why the switch?
Using this service will make the quoting/bidding process easier for us and our suppliers. The Public Purchase eProcurement System was designed exclusively for use by government agencies and their suppliers.
Benefits to Us
This eProcurement system is compliant with all Federal and State regulations, which determine the required procedures for Government Agency purchasing practices. This service will also create an up to date supplier database, which will be hosted on Public Purchase's servers and will allow suppliers to easily update and change their information as needed.
Benefits to You
This eProcurement system will create a single location in which to view open Solicitations and award information through the Public Purchase website. This system will also provide an automatic notification and transmittal of bid solicitations to suppliers. In addition, Public Purchase gives you access to bid opportunities with other government entities. All of this is provided at no charge to you.
If you require technical assistance, please contact Public Purchase at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or use their Live Chat during business hours. It can be found in the upper left corner of the Public Purchase web site.
Thank you for participating in the City of Coral Gables new registration process.
