Virtual Procurement Fair 
December 9, 2020 | 9:30am – 3:00pm 

The Office of Procurement invites you to attend our Virtual Procurement Fair! 

This event was originally scheduled in April, but was canceled due to COVID-19. As part of the continued economic recovery in Montgomery County, this virtual event will provide local businesses with relevant, timely opportunities. The Office of Procurement and more than 10 county departments will discuss projected solicitations and interact with the vendor community. 

Learn about upcoming solicitations directly from County departments.
 Each department’s Contract Administrator will have a few minutes to talk about their expectations and the relevant solicitations. Multiple departments will participate in the same industry-focused sessions as noted in the agenda. Procurement Specialists will also be available to answer questions. 


What to expect: 

The sessions are industry-focused by topic: 

  • IT Commodities and Services 

  • Construction and Facility Maintenance Services 

  • Equipment/Supplies 

  • Administrative/Professional Services 


After the department presentations, there will be a Q&A session with the vendors.
