Doing business with KCIT
Partnering with vendors to find the best products, people, ideas
KCIT partners with vendors to bring the best technology solutions to the people of King County. We strongly encourage vendors to build relationships with our service teams, and to understand our strategic technology goals.
One way to do this is by attending a Vendor Forum—KCIT holds two vendor forums each year, one in the spring and one in the fall. These forums introduce vendors to KCIT staff and provide networking opportunities.
Our next Vendor Forum is scheduled for October in King County's Chinook Building. We will post details in September.
Our May 2017 Vendor Forum was a joint forum with the City of Seattle. Checked out our LinkedIn page for the presentations.
Our November 2016 Vendor Forum featured presentations and speed interviewing. Hear from vendors like you about how it went. Bill Kehoe, our CIO, delivered a presentation about KCIT's strategies and priorities. Our contracts and procurement specialist gave a useful presentation on doing business with King County: Myths and Facts.
