Businesses interested in working for the City should register with DemandStar. The City of North Port uses DemandStar to distribute automatic solicitation notices to all interested businesses.  Businesses who have subscribed to DemandStar are notified by fax or email whenever a Request for Bid, Request for Proposal, Request for Qualifications or Request for Quote has been issued for the commodity offered by the vendor.

The City of North Port utilizes DemandStar for compiling an automated vendor list. The list categorizes each vendor by commodity codes for the specific goods or services which they have selected.
