Kansas City Fed Supplier Information

January 5, 2015

The Kansas City Fed generally uses competitive solicitation processes to acquire goods and services. We award contracts to suppliers that best meet our needs in terms of price, quality, availability, service and other criteria specific to the product or service. In most circumstances, we issue electronic requests for proposals and require suppliers to submit electronic proposals as well.

How to become a supplier

Our self-registration tool allows us to collect information about your organization. If an acquisition arises for which we have determined your organization may be qualified, we may contact you. Completing the self-registration tool does not imply that your organization has been prequalified for any particular acquisition and does not assure that you will be included in an acquisition process.

Supplier diversity

The Kansas City Fed believes diversity strengthens our organization and enriches our community. We encourage the participation of small and minority- and women-owned companies in our procurement process. In our effort to obtain competitive, high-quality goods and services, we utilize a variety of means to identify and maintain a diverse group of potential suppliers, with the goal of including these businesses in appropriate solicitation opportunities.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City does not discriminate on the basis of  race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, or genetic information in the solicitation, award, or administration of contracts. The Reserve Bank also promotes the acquisition of goods and services from small businesses. The Reserve Bank is committed to ensuring that all firms interested in doing business with the Reserve Bank, including minority- and women-owned businesses, have the maximum practicable opportunity to participate fairly in contracts awarded by the Reserve Bank.
