1. Obtain a vendor application from the Procurement Services Department or Business Office Manager, either in person or by downloading the vendor application from the CCC website. The vendor application should be completed in its entirety and e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your firm is a certified Minority (MBE) or Woman-Owned Business (WBE), we ask that you include copies of your current certification documents.
2. Procurement Services staff will enter your firm into the CCC vendor database giving each college access to your firm to obtain quotations for goods and services. Vendors are encouraged to check the contract opportunities page or Chicago Sun-Times for formal bid projects.
Vendors are also encouraged to contact the Business Managers at each College and inform them of the types of products/services they can provide to the campuses.
