GETTING ON THE CITY’S VENDOR LIST Slide9: The City (and user departments) access the Centralized Master Bidders List (CMBL) maintained by The State of Texas Building andamp; Procurement Commission to meet competitive bidding requirements. Manufacturers, suppliers, and other vendors wishing to furnish materials, equipment, supplies, and services to the City and other governmental entities should apply to be on the CMBL to receive bidding opportunities. Registering as a CMBL vendor will increase your exposure to other purchasing entities in Central Texas and throughout the state. Slide10: Vendors may register for the CMBL either on-line or by submitting a hard copy application. We encourage vendors to use the on-line registration. If assistance is required during the registration process, please contact TBPC at 512-463-3459. Vendors who intend to offer computer or telecommunication products or services will also need to become an approved Catalog Information System Vendor (CISV) in addition to their CMBL registration. Information regarding this program is available at: www.tbpc.state.tx.us/stpurch/cisv. 3. REQUEST FOR QUOTES (verbal or written): 3.
