Procurement News

In an effort to increase transparency and equity, the City of Dallas has created a quarterly report of upcoming solicitations.  It is the City's intention that the Procurement Quarterly will provide advance notice of bidding opportunities, increasing vendor submissions, encouraging M/WBE participation, providing ample time for planning and preparing competitve bids and proposals and increasing accountability.

Procurement Quarterly:

  • Provides a 3-month forcast for all upcoming solicitations of goods, services, and construction over $50,000.
  • Includes solicitations from all City of Dallas departments
  • Provides information on the contract type, description, term, estimated value and sub-contracting opportunities.

 The Office of Procurement Service introduced the Procurement Quarterly at a Supplier Workshop on Monday, November 18, 2019.  Click here to watch the video for the event.  For open solicitations go to Bonfire to register as a Supplier and submit bids and proposals.
