Doing Business With Purchasing

Our goal is to make the purchasing process easier for you while concurrently maintaining the integrity of the process, that is, to facilitate the acquisition of the best product or service at the least cost to the taxpayer.

The City of Fontana has implemented an online purchasing management system. This system allows you to register online to bid for services and commodities. After winning a bid you will electronically register as a Vendor using the VSS system to update contact information, view existing purchase orders, contracts and payment history.
