Direct Deposit Program

The County of Los Angeles makes every effort to pay our vendors on time. However, checks frequently get lost in the mail, stolen, or damaged. Participating in the Direct Deposit program means money is available in your account faster by eliminating the “hold” and “clear” process from the bank. Sign up now at http://directdeposit.lacounty.gov/ if you plan to do business with the County.

County’s Current Preference Program

Business that are eligible to participate in the following Preference Program will receive up to a 15% preference (up to $150,000) on the scoring of bids/prices on applicable County Solicitation/Contract for services. Business must submit a Department of Consumer and Business Affair’s (DCBA) certification letter with bids/proposals. Only one preference program will apply on the same bid/proposal.
