The City of Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Business Council launched the Regional Alliance Marketplace for Procurement (RAMP) to help centralize both public and private procurement opportunities. This portal will provide equitable access to over $10 billion in procurement opportunities in its first year alone. Find contractors and suppliers in RAMP’s database of over 80,000 vendors in L.A. or bid on the City’s annual $4.5 billion spending budget.
“Making it easier for small and diverse businesses to have access to more procurement opportunities has always been a core priority to further expand equity in our city. RAMP has come together with the support of the business community and local organizations, and we are excited for the new opportunities that will be available to all types of small businesses across the region.” – Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti on RAMP
