The Saint Louis Zoo regularly advertises requests for proposals for products and services.

Whenever feasible and appropriate, the Zoo will also post listings of bid opportunities on the Web. We have two areas of bid opportunities - general, which includes goods and services for the day to day operations of the Zoo, and facilities, which include improvements to the Zoo's physical grounds.
