The Purchasing Division is the primary agency responsible for sourcing matters for supplies and services necessary for the efficient operation of all City departments. Purchasing works jointly with the various City departments in developing bid specifications, scopes of work and is responsible for facilitating the competitive processes and contract management. Additionally, the City is responsible for monitoring annual contracts, surplus property sells, including City fleet, and unclaimed confiscated goods. Our online tools are designed to provide vendors with the information needed to do business with the City.
