New Applicant

New applicants should follow the four steps below to complete the registration process:

  1. Use Google Chrome or Firefox and clear your browser before submitting a Supplier Registration Form. Determine if your business meets the diversity program qualifications or if your construction trade requires pre-qualification.
  2. Registration is approved after the Supplier Administration Team reviews and verifies the data.
  3. Suppliers receive two emails from [email protected] within 5-7 business days of registration approval. 
    • The first email includes a temporary URL and user ID. 
    • The second email contains a temporary password. Suppliers have 31 business days before the temporary login expires.
  4. Suppliers are prompted to change the temporary ID and password upon login. 


  • Please do not register more than once even if you have not received an email after 3-5 business days. 
  • After a new applicant becomes an approved supplier, login the Supplier Portal to maintain information.
