Is it grammatically correct to say:

“you can contact John Doe to be provided with the account information”?

Is the “to be provided” part something a native English speaker would say it in this context?

I don't think it's ungrammatical, strictly speaking. However, the active voice in "can contact" contrasted with the passive voice in "to be provided with" is a bit confusing. If I had to say something similar, I would replace it with

You can contact John Doe to obtain the account information.
