Doing Business with the City

Our objective is to purchase required goods and services in a timely manner to meet the City’s needs at a fair and reasonable price utilizing an open competitive bidding process.

In order to do business with the City, it is necessary that you register online through our supplier portal. If you are already doing business with the City you can view your purchase orders and past work history.
