Janitorial & Landscaping Services Program (JLS)
The JLS Purchasing Program has two pools set aside for prequalified certified SBE firms as defined in Section 2-8.2.7.02 of the County Code: one pool is set aside for the purchase of janitorial services and one pool is set aside for the purchase of landscaping services, if permitted by the funding source. Placement in any of the pools is not a contract between the County and any vendor, but an acknowledgment that included vendors meet the qualifications listed on the subject pools. Prequalified vendors will be invited to participate in future competitions on an as-needed basis.
JLS Program Eligibility Requirements and Registration
To enroll in the JLS Purchasing Program, Suppliers/Vendors shall comply with the following requirements:
- Register as a Supplier/Vendor with SPD in order to enter into contract with the County. It is incumbent upon the Supplier/Vendor to ensure all contact information in the registration remains current to ensure that the Supplier/Vendor will receive ITQs/WOPRs.
- Be certified as a County SBE Goods and Services (SBE-G&S) firm and maintain certification requirements. For more information please visit the Office of Small Business Development or call 305-375-3111.

The Supplier/Vendor shall submit all of the specified information, documents and attachments as listed in the Qualification Requirements section of the Application for Janitorial Services Pool or the Application for Landscaping Services Program. The County may, at its sole discretion and in its best interest, allow Supplier/Vendor to complete, supplement or supply the required documents throughout the term of the JLS Purchasing Program.
- Vendor/Supplier must anticipate the inclusion of the County’s Section 1 - General Terms and Conditions in all contracts resulting from ITQs/WOPRs.
