The ECWA maintains an Open Vendor Policy, welcoming any and all potential bidders. It is our intent to implement and strictly enforce purchasing and disposal guidelines so as to:
openly promote fair competition
acquire goods and services that provide the best product from a responsible vendor at the most reasonable price
guard against favoritism, improvidence, extravagance, fraud and corruption
Due to the current outbreak of COVID-19, no member of the public, including bidders or their representatives, may be physically present at the place where the bids will be opened. Bids will be either recorded or live streamed. Bidders will be permitted to drop off their bids by the designated time at the Service Center front desk, but will not be permitted to remain in the building.
Formal bids are advertised in various local publications. All bids are distributed out of the ECWA Service Center, 3030 Union Road, Cheektowaga, NY 14227-1097. Informal quotations are mailed to registered vendors. If you wish to become a registered vendor, please complete our New Vendor Application.
