We are fully committed to establishing a productive business relationship with vendors and contractors to provide quality products and services for the College at the most competitive prices.

Our Business Ethics
Purchasing functions will be carried out in a most efficient manner consistent with
service to the
College, legal requirements, and sound procurement practices conducted with fairness, dignity,
honesty, and integrity.
Since Mt. SAC is a state-funded institution, there are several required procurement procedures and processes that must be adhered to by both the College and prospective vendors who want to provide goods and services. Under state law, the Mt. SAC Board of Trustees has the ultimate responsibility for all purchases and contracts.
The College’s purchasing philosophy is to maintain professional relationships with all vendors. Vendors are free to advertise and contact our various departments directly. However, your promotional efforts should not include gifts, favors, or any form of personal gratuities to any College personnel. We are equally committed to the principle of inclusive opportunity and welcome the participation of all qualified businesses, including those owned and operated by women, minority, and other underrepresented groups.
Thank you for your interest in doing business with Mt. San Antonio College. To begin the process, please register as a vendor by clicking on the PlanetBids logo.
Once registered, you will be able to:
1. View and/or participate in district solicitations.
2. Maintain your own vendor profile.
3. Search for all bids and proposals and download documents.
4. Bid electronically.
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. In addition, new vendors will be asked to complete a new vendor packet and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
