About Us

The Procurement Department includes Purchasing and the Warehouse. Together, these areas manage the acquisition of commodities and services; the storage and distribution of applicable commodities. 

The Purchasing Division is responsible for facilitating organizational purchases through the solicitation and selection of vendors, negotiation of contracts, and execution of purchase agreements. 

The Warehouse manages materials ranging from office supplies and small tools to construction materials and electric transmission components.

An informal or written quotation process is used for purchases or projects costing less than $50,000, allowing individual City Departments to work directly with vendors and service providers, also referred to as "suppliers." 

Purchases or project costs over $50,000 must go through a formal, sealed solicitation process in accordance with State law. Learn more in the Bidding Process Guide.
