Purchasing Information
Welcome Vendors!
City of Brea Announces a New eProcurement System

Do you want to increase your chances of receiving notifications of new procurements and contract opportunities? The Purchasing Division is utilizing the Public Group’s Public Vendor and Public Purchase for its electronic procurement needs (eProcurement).

Vendors will be able to register online; receive automatic email notifications of new procurements and contract opportunities; download documents, drawings, forms, etc.; submit questions online; receive answers to questions via addendums, results of procurements, and award notifications – all electronically.

Additionally, vendors can have access to other entities that utilize the same procurement system and broaden their opportunities even further.

Here’s a Quick Start Guide on How to Register and Start Receiving Automatic Email Notifications of New Procurements and Contract Opportunities

Step 1: Register your business with the City of Brea.
  • Go to www.publicpurchase.com
  • Click “Go to Register”
  • Select “Free Registration” on the right hand side of the page

Step 2: Create an account for your organization with Public Purchase by following the Vendor Registration prompts. When your account is created, you will receive a confirmation email, usually within 24 hours or less. If you already have an account with Public Purchase, proceed to Step 3.

Step 3: Register your Public Purchase account with the City of Brea.
When your registration with Public Purchase is activated, you will receive a confirmation email from Public Purchase. Using the link provided in the email:
  • Log in using your username and password
  • Click on the “Tools” tab on the top right hand side of the screen. 
  • Click on “Agencies”
  • Type in “City of Brea”
  • Click on “Search”
  • Click “Register” on the right hand side of the City of Brea

The City of Brea requires you to complete one task in this part of the registration process:
  • Review your NAICS classcodes and add any you may have missed.
  • Click continue and then register.
If you need assistance during this process please click on the “chat” button on the top toolbar at the very left. This will take you to a live chat with vendor support.

Thank you for your interest in doing business with the City of Brea. We look forward to providing you with opportunities for new procurements or contract opportunities.
