In an effort to make the solicitation process more efficient and cost effective for both vendors and the agency, the City of Valdez Capital Facilities Department has adopted an electronic bidding process for all types of solicitations. Electronic bids may be submitted at the website as the primary method of bid submission. Paper bids will continue to be accepted, but it is strongly recommended vendors become familiar with the electronic process. All electronic bidders must first register on
