The City of Reno would like to hear from you. We encourage innovators and businesses to share ideas and concepts through our Unsolicited Proposal Form.

What is an Unsolicited Proposal?

An unsolicited proposal is a written offer or idea that is submitted to the City of Reno for the purpose of developing a partnership or concept that would benefit the citizens of Reno.


Unsolicited proposals offer a solution to a recognized problem, provide value to the City of Reno, and support the City of Reno’s Vision, Mission, and Priorities.


An unsolicited proposal is not an offer or alternative for property or services that the City of Reno is currently procuring through competitive methods. More information about the City of Reno Purchasing Program.

Who should submit an Unsolicited Proposal?

The City of Reno welcomes proposals from any vendor with technical and financial resources to provide the services proposed or the ability to contract with the City of Reno and/or serve as a partner in a contract resulting from the adoption of the proposal. The City encourages and welcomes innovative submissions from private sector businesses (including startups and small businesses), academic institutions, philanthropic foundations, and non-profit organizations.
