New Procurement System
The Port of Long Beach has transitioned to a new web-based procurement solution called "PB System," provided by PlanetBids, Inc. The system is now live; use the link at right to log in or to register for an account.
Both formal and informal solicitations may be processed through our online system. It is the bidder's/proposer's responsibility to ensure that the most complete and current version of the solicitation, including addenda, has been obtained.
Please note: Contractors/Vendors are responsible for maintaining up to date and accurate information and may edit their profile at any time.
Important Notice for Construction Opportunities
- New construction project opportunities advertised after November 4, 2013 will only be posted in PB System, which may be accessed by clicking the link in the box above.
- Construction project opportunities advertised for bid before November 4, 2013 will continue to be posted to our Out for Bid page until the bid period is closed. This includes any documents associated with these projects, such as Notice Inviting Bids, addenda cover letters, sign-in sheets, etc.
- Our Future Work page will continue to be updated as well until further notice.
We have made every effort to make all aspects of the contracting process as easy, secure, and reliable as possible. However, if you need help or have questions concerning the features available to our bidders, please click the "Help" link inside the PB System for online assistance. Contractors/Vendors should use the PB System to contact a PlanetBids representative for technical assistance.
