Doing Business with Travis AFB
Travis Air Force Base has various methods of contracting or purchasing from the local community. For additional information about any of these purchasing programs, visit the Travis website or call 707.424.7711.
Central Contractor Registration (CCR)
When Travis personnel need to make purchases above the Government Purchase Card limits, they must have a purchase order or contract. To learn what Travis needs to purchase and how they purchase it, register with the federal government’s Central Contractor Registration system (CCR). Federal Acquisition Regulations require that contractors register via CCR before they can be awarded any contract. Vendors will be assigned a Contractor and Government Entity (CAGE) code after CCR registration.
For purchases $3,000 to $25,000, Travis personnel must get three price quotes.
For purchases over $25,000, Travis personnel must seek open bid solicitations. Anyone in the country can bid on these solicitations.
Government Purchase Card (GPC)
The GPC is a government issued Visa card. It is Travis’ primary purchasing tool when personnel buy supplies and equipment less than $3,000 and services less than $2,500. Competition is not required, but it is encouraged. The card can be used for purchases up to $25,000 on pre-existing government contracts, after comparing terms and conditions of three contracts and selecting the best value. To do business with Travis, visit its public website to contact the unit with which you want to do business.
As part of the GPC program, Travis has created the Direct Vendor Discount (DVD) Program. Vendors interested in doing business with Travis offer discounts to the Travis units. To participate, fill out the Direct Vendor Discount form (PDF) and fax it to the GPC Helpdesk. Participating businesses receive free advertising exposure to Travis purchasers and a listing on Travis’ government-only intranet website.
