Moreno Valley City Council Establishes Local Vendor Preference

The Moreno Valley City Council has approved a new purchasing ordinance establishing a local vendor preference. The intent of this preference is to enhance local vendors’ competitiveness when bidding on materials and supplies purchased by the City. The preference applies only to businesses located within Moreno Valley and equals one percent (1%), which represents the City’s portion of sales tax generated on the sales transaction. Purchases not subject to sales tax would not qualify for the local vendor preference.

This new local vendor preference will be advantageous to Moreno Valley businesses and is also intended to help stimulate the local economy. The new purchasing ordinance establishing the local vendor preference will take effect June 12, 2009.
