For the purchase of non-construction basic supplies and services, the City has adopted a “decentralized” purchasing model. Individual departments are authorized to purchase items, to a certain dollar threshold, without the direct involvement of the purchasing division. Departments are required to abide by all City policies concerning procurement of goods and services.
A department is required to post quote requests on the City website for a minimum of one week when a purchase is between $3,000 and $50,000. The City utilizes www.publicpurchase.com for these quote requests. Quote responses should be submitted via email to the requesting department.
All City Departments may purchase certain, non-contracted supplies, materials, or services up to a maximum of $2,999.99 without obtaining quotes.
