Working with Austin Energy

Tips for Getting Started as a Registered Vendor

Austin Energy works with a variety of vendors to help with operations and projects. We especially encourage local and women- or minority-owned businesses to work with us.

Register as a Vendor

To become an Austin Energy vendor, you must first register with the City of Austin's Vendor Connection.

Registering allows you to:

  • List your products or services with the City
  • Receive solicitation notices when your product or services meet our business needs
  • Look for different types of solicitations, and see when master agreements expire and are ready for re-solicitation

Women- and Minority-Owned Businesses
