Department Overview

The Procurement Division provides support to all City departments on every aspect of procurements, from the development of solicitation documents to contract award. The division is responsible for the timely and efficient procurement of goods and services necessary for the delivery of municipal services.

The division utilizes an electronic procurement system that increases visibility of contract items through the use of catalogs, which in turn increases the use of established contracts that reflect volume pricing.
