Bids & Proposals
We pursue contracts that achieve a balance of interest and offer the "best value" by developing solicitation criteria that measure factors beyond initial acquisition price.
We actively encourage small businesses - especially minority and women owned firms - to participate in our process.
For more information on the bid process or to register as a vendor, go the Public Purchase website.
Our key objective is to assist in managing cost while maximizing service and quality. We do this in part by examining and implementing value-added procurement services. Additionally, we use vendors, contractors and service providers who exhibit the most cost effective and advantageous financial, technical and staff capabilities.
We also strive to keep as much of our spending local as possible.
