Doing Business with the City

​Registering with the City of Charlotte

Thank you for your interest in doing business with the City of Charlotte. To be notified about contracting opportunities, as well as receiving a purchase order or payment, the City requires vendors to be registered. Registered vendors are visible to and searchable by all City departments for solicitation and purchasing opportunities.

Required Information

  • Tax Identification Number (TIN) or Social Security Number (SSN)

  • Address information, including: physical and remit addresses for purchase orders, payments, and deliveries

  • General, Accounts Payable, and Purchasing contact information

Vendor Registration

These automated forms will require you to create a digital signature during the registration process. Following submission, you will receive a copy of the completed vendor form via email.

  • If you are a certified Minority, Woman, or Small Business Enterprise (MWSBE) or a Disadvantaged Business, attach copies of any applicable certificate(s)

What to expect next

The City's Vendor Administration team will send a confirmation email once your registration is completed and a City of Charlotte Vendor ID # has been assigned to your company. Any requests for missing, incomplete, or illegible information may delay this process. Please allow 48 hours for processing.
