RFP and Bid Opportunities

Request for Proposals/Bids

The Foundation for California Community Colleges (Foundation) helps colleges, universities, and our K-12 partner schools build, create, and operate more effectively through programs and services that drive excellence while saving millions of dollars annually.

The Foundation was established as an auxiliary organization of the community college pursuant to California Education Code Sections 72670-72682. It was incorporated on May 21, 1998 under the provisions of the California Corporation Code as a nonprofit public benefit corporation, exclusively for educational purposes to promote and assist education, administrative and related services of the California Community Colleges.

With California State’s budget condition, community colleges/districts are faced with increasing pressure to achieve the highest value for every dollar spent, in other words, to do more with less. To maximize value and meet state code requirements, a competitive bid process is utilized to establish purchasing agreements. References to Colleges or Districts will be deemed to include K-12 school districts and any public corporation or agency, including any county, city, town or public corporation or agency within the State of California. Listed below are open bids.
