TVORS (Tarrant Vendor Online Registration System) replaces the paper-based registration system previously used to sign up for bid notification. This self-serve, Web-based, vendor registration system is the principal means for contacting vendors and diseminating important information regarding bid/quotation opportunities and HUB/DBE program updates. In just a few easy steps, you can manage your company's contact and commodity information to ensure you receive the latest information from Tarrant County Purchasing.
To access TVORS, go to County's website and click on DOING BUSINESS; Bid Opportunities; Vendor Online Registration (Vendor Online Registration). The four step registration process is described on the right side of the TVORS Welcome page. Be sure to link to the appropriate commodities (NIGP Codes) and business certifications (HUB, MBE, DBE, etc). These codes and links are critical to receiving updated bid information.
If applicable, forward a copy of your Minority Certification to the Purchasing Department via fax: 817-884-2629 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Please Note: Failure to maintain in TVORS a valid company email address, Tax/Employer Identification Number and links to the NIGP Codes your company services and provides could result in non-notification of bid and quotation opportunities!
