Vendor Application & Commodity Listing

When do I become a Vendor?

Once a purchase order or contract is award to your company, you can become an active vendor by submitting a completed vendor application and W-9.  The vendor application requests specific detailed information about your company. Your application submission will not be successful without the required information. Be sure to complete the application in its entirety and email to: purchasing@ashevillenc.gov

Prior to completing the application, you will need to review the Commodity List.

What is a commodity code?

The codes for the specific commodities/services that your company can provide to the city should be entered in the table provided at the end of the application. This number will be a combination of the applicable 3 and/or 6-digit Commodity/Sub commodity code classification shown on the Commodity List. If you are unable to identify your commodity or service category or if you need to provide more information, please feel free to furnish your comments in the section provided after the table.

Once you submit your application, no further action is required. Your company's name will be added to the city's list of registered bidders and your company will be eligible to receive bid solicitations from the city's Purchasing Division.
