Vendor Services at Parks
Are you a Yoga or Tai Chi instructor, personal trainer, or perhaps a music or art teacher looking for a place to provide your services? Then Miami-Dade Parks wants you to take part in a County Bid to provide your program or services at any one of its 263 park locations.
In this challenging economy, The Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department has been transitioning from serving as a community provider of programming, to serving instead as a facilitator of programs offered by private individuals or businesses. As an example, such current popular offerings are our Fitness Boot Camps, operated by independent personal trainers at our parks.
To that end, the Department has issued the County Bid # 9239-0/15 seeking private providers of family friendly health, fitness, and arts-oriented programs to offer their services to the community on Miami-Dade Park property, a potential windfall for businesses that are financially strained by the high cost and overhead of leasing. Miami-Dade Parks' leasing options are highly affordable in comparison to other venues.
To get involved and become a pre-qualified service provider, there are two steps:
- Register as a County Vendor and complete a Vendor Registration Application.
- Request and complete the contract package by contacting the County's Procurement Department.
It is each vendor's responsibility to complete the above paperwork and to make sure the information is current because all Requests for Quotation for programming opportunities sent out are based upon the information provided.
Registered party vendors are the only vendors that will be allowed into the Miami-Dade Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department for parties at picnic shelters, pavilions and cabanas. These party vendors have submitted all the required documents to conduct business in Miami-Dade County.
