Registration in the vendor portal does not guarantee a business opportunity, place your company on an approved vendor list, or obligate Emergency Disaster Services (EDS) to solicit requests for bids, quotations, or proposals. Registration does, however, give EDS decision-makers access to your company’s information when conducting supplier searches so that they may contact you directly regarding upcoming opportunities.
All documents must be completed in full and submitted via the instructions:
- VENDOR ONBOARDING CHECKLIST
- VENDOR NON-DISCLOSURE AGREEMENT
- EMERGENCY DISASTER SERVICES MASTER VENDOR SERVICE AGREEMENT
EDS believes that having a diverse supplier base enhances our supply chain, which contributes to increased efficiency to provide an enhanced experience for clients.
