Purchasing

The Town of Taos will post all request for proposals (RFP) and bid requests on this page. State law requires a campaign disclosure form on all procurements (purchases) of services. Parties interested in submitting a bid or RFP should call the Purchasing Office at 575-751-2025 or 575-751-2029 in order to be included in the Spec-holder List in case of addendum to the request.

Bidding on Federally Funded Projects

In the upcoming months the Town of Taos will be bidding out projects, including a Community Development Block Grant funded construction project, that are funded in part with federal money. A new requirement for the use of federal funds is that all contractors and subcontractors be registered with the federal System for Award Management (SAM) prior to entering into a contract with the Town of Taos. Registration with SAM is free. The following information is required to register your business:

  • Your Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number from Dun and Bradstreet, and the name and address associated with that DUNS. If you don’t have a DUNS number, one can be obtained via their online form.
  • Your Taxpayer Identification Number and the name associated with that number (from your W-2 or W-9).
  • Your Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) Code. If you already have one (if you don’t, one will be assigned to you during registration).
