Join the New Orleans Chamber of Commerce for an introduction to the registration process, updating existing supplier profiles, responding to a solicitation, and payment process for City contracts.
Benefits of obtaining City contracts can include:
- Assured Payment: while City's payment terms are NET30, a city contract can allow vendors to rely on receiving steady monthly revenue.
- Strengthened Company Value: having city contracts can make your company more valuable when it's time to sell or apply for a business loan or line of credit. Contracts can be passed on to the buyers of your business, making your company a more attractive acquisition.
- Finding More Opportunities: having a City contract can increase your networking potential and help you gain higher levels of trust with future clients.
- Advantages for socially and economically disadvantaged businesses: the Bureau of Purchasing works closely with the Mayor's Economic Development Office and the Office of Supplier Diversity to ensure that City departments give due consideration to contracting with socially and economically disadvantaged businesses.
