Procurement

Coronavirus Update

Due to active cases of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) being reported in Duval, Clay, Nassau and St. Johns Counties, JEA Procurement is taking the following precautionary measures, effective immediately:

  • Bid Drop-Off: Precautions are being taken for bid drop-off location and times. The bid drop-off location is the JEA Mail Room located on the first floor of the JEA Customer Care Building located at 21 W. Church St, Jacksonville, FL 32202. The JEA Mail Room has its own entrance located between the two JEA buildings. The JEA Mail Room will receive bids Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. Bidders will still have the option to drop bids off the day of Bid Openings between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. If that changes, we will send out additional information.

    Due to COVID-19, JEA strongly encourages bidders to mail their bids to 21 W. Church St., Jacksonville, FL 32202, instead of dropping bids off in person where possible. It is the bidder's responsibility to ensure mailed bids are received prior to the due date and time as stated in the solicitation.

  • Pre-Bid Meetings: Pre-bid meetings will be held via conference call or WebEx only. Any updates to current solicitations along with solicitation addendums will be posted on this website.
  • Bid Openings: Bid openings will be held on site, located in Tower 1 and via WebEx. The public is strongly encouraged to attend remotely via WebEx. Any updates to current solicitations along with solicitation addendums will be posted on this website. 
  • Solicitations: For any current solicitations, please frequently visit our Formal Opportunities and Informal Opportunities pages to see any updates and addendums. Please contact your respective JEA Buyer for any questions or updates to existing solicitations.
  • Supplier Meetings: All planned supplier meetings will be either rescheduled or changed to conference call or WebEx. 
  • Awards: Awards meetings be held remotely via WebEx. Please visit the Awards Meeting page to view any updates related to the Awards meetings.

Gift Message for Vendors 

While all of us at JEA appreciate the good intentions with which gifts are given, we must be sensitive to the positions of special trust and responsibility we hold given the nature of our business.

Due to our ongoing obligation to our stakeholders, the giving and acceptance of gifts may lead to the appearance of impropriety. In light of this, JEA’s corporate Ethics Policy and the City of Jacksonville (COJ) Ethics Ordinance prohibit employees from accepting gifts valued over $100 from vendors, and accumulated gifts from the same vendor must not exceed $250 per calendar year.
