Supplier Portal


To do business with the CHA, a vendor must register as a supplier in our Supplier Portal.

The Web portal allows vendors to:

  • Receive new procurement opportunities (i.e. Small Purchases, Request for Proposals, Invitation for Bids)
  • Submit bids, proposals, and qualifications electronically 
  • Access and download solicitations
  • Update and maintain vendor account information and password resetting capabilities 
  • Communicate more effectively with DPC staff during the solicitation process 

Click Here To Access the CHA Supplier Portal 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Required browsers for using the Supplier Portal are Chrome, Firefox Mozilla and I.E. 10 and above. You may not be able to complete the registration process if you do not use one of the required browsers.

All new and current vendors must be entered into the new Supplier Portal to avoid possible interruption in your access to CHA procurement information.

Any firms interested in bidding on CHA contracting opportunities are required to register in the Supplier Portal. Firms may register at any time, including when submitting a bid or proposal, and registration is only required once.
