For questions please email the Purchasing Department at

The Purchasing Department is responsible for the purchase and distribution of all supplies, equipment and materials, as well as for arranging services and contractual agreements.  To facilitate this commitment, Coast Colleges has implemented a web-based procurement system hosted by PanetBids, provided at no cost to all interested businesses.  The PlanetBids system allows interested suppliers, contractors, and service providers to register online and to receive automated email notifications of solicitations (Bids, RFP, and quotes) for goods and services pertinent to their business, as well as allowing registered vendors to download bid documents, receive addenda, submit electronic bids, and view bid results through the PlanetBids system.

Both formal and informal solicitations may be processed through this system.  The District is accepting electronic submissions only through PlanetBids.  All responses are due by the date and time indicated on each solicitation and late responses will not be accepted.

Vendors are responsible for registering and maintaining up to date and accurate business profile information in the PlanetBids system.  Vendors may edit their profile information at any time.

The Purchasing Department has made every effort to make all aspects of the procurement process easy, secure, and reliable.  However, if you need help or have questions concerning the features available, please click Help within the PlanetBids system for online assistance.  Vendors are responsible for contacting PlanetBids directly for any technical assistance.
