Purchases and Supplies Frequently Asked Questions

How do I tell the City about my business?

Interested parties should visit Room 128 to review the bid board, drop off information, and/or schedule a meeting with a Buyer.

If you are from a minority, female owned, or small business, consider becoming listed in the CSB/MBE/FBE/LGBTBE Registry which is a listing of all Certified CSB/MBE/FBE/LGBTBE Businesses. This registry is used by the Buyers to develop bid lists and also by contractors looking for subcontractors. Qualified vendors are urged to apply for this important certification.

Q767
How do I find out about current bids?

Invitations to Bid estimated at $50,000 or more can be seen in the City Record on Wednesdays and can also be seen here.

Invitations to Bid under $50,000 are posted online here and on the Bid Board in Room 128 in City Hall, and can be seen by the public from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday.

Requests for Proposals can be seen here.

In addition, bids may be sent to you. Buyers have lists of eligible vendors which they issue bids to directly. City Departments are asked to suggest vendors for their purchases. Please note that there is no guarantee that you will always be notified of every opportunity. The primary responsibility rests with you to check the City Record, the Website and/or the Bid Board in Room 128 on a regular basis. We suggest that you check every week.
