Vendor Information

In an effort to improve visibility and participation, the Town of Newton has joined the New Jersey Purchasing Group to solicit bids from vendors. This system will provide you with convenient online access to our bid information, plus other agencies throughout New Jersey.

It’s easy to participate. Simply visit the New Jersey Purchasing Group website  at :
and click on the link to complete your registration. If you are already registered as a vendor on this system, you do not need to register again.  

A subscription service is available that will notify you by e-mail anytime the Town of Newton, or any other participation agency, issues a solicitation that matches your company’s business. A free, non-notification subscription is also available, at no charge, that provides access to all bid opportunities, however with no automatic notification.

The Town of Newton plans to allows vendors to respond electronically (where allowed by law). Many agencies on the New Jersey Purchasing Group allow vendors to submit bid responses electronically, saving costly hours to print and deliver their responses to our office.

We hope you find this service useful in expanding your visibility to the broad array of bid opportunities from the extensive number of agencies that are part of the New Jersey Purchasing Group. We appreciate your cooperation and welcome your participation!
