The City of Los Angeles is excited to announce the launch of the regional marketplace for public and private contracting opportunities coming this Fall! We invite you to partner with the Mayor's office to spread the word and get businesses registered that traditionally have not done business with the City of Los Angeles or other public agencies.

The City of LA has partnered with our business community to create a space for both public and private entities to post their opportunities in one convenient location. This upcoming decade represents hundreds of billions of dollars worth of events, projects, and infrastructure investments coming to the Los Angeles region. To prepare for this influx of economic activity, we are transforming the Los Angeles Business Assistance Virtual Network (LABAVN- the City’s current solicitation portal) into a Regional Marketplace. This exciting platform will provide unprecedented access to a wide array of opportunities
and resources from both the public and private sectors.

Los Angeles COVID-19 Resources
