All requisitions are sent to Purchasing and inspected for proper documentation. Also, Purchasing is responsible for assuring that three quotes are obtained for orders exceeding $5000 and the division reviews documents that go before the Board of Control. Purchasing also makes sure proper bidding protocols and procedures are followed.
Vendor Self Service is the County of Summit’s new self-service registration portal for businesses providing goods and services. Through this portal you will provide your contact information and vendor application which includes a W9. There is also a Qualifications Statement for consulting services. Once you are notified your registration has been approved you will be able to view open bids, checks, invoices, purchase orders and contracts.
To begin you will need your W9 and Tax ID information. Existing vendors will also need their current vendor number. Contact VendorSelfService@summitoh.net to request an existing vendor number or additional help. You may also call 330-643-8570.
Contact FiscalFinance@summitoh.net for any W9 or banking issues.
