Sell office supplies? The city of Allentown may want to buy from you. It's looking to expand its vendor pool.

The city of Allentown spends millions of dollars a year on everything from office supplies to blacktop and heavy equipment and now it’s seeking new businesses to buy from to deepen its vendor pool.

“Local businesses are missing out on a huge opportunity to increase their bottom line,” said Jessica Baraket, purchasing agent for the city.

She noted that it’s free to register to become a vendor to the city and it only takes about 20 minutes to register online.

Baraket said the registration entails entering company information, such as contact names and selecting commodity/class-item codes for those products and services the company represents.

She noted that solicitation notices for upcoming bid requirements will be sent to vendors based upon the selected codes and including those codes correctly is vital to the electronic notification process and without them, a company will not receive bid notices.

Businesses can register to become a city vendor on the website https://www.publicpurchase.com.
