Procurement Process
Procurement Office
The procurement process for the City is coordinated through the Procurement Office within the Finance & Budget Department under the guiding principal that as a governmental entity, the maximization of tax and rate payer dollars and accountability to the public is mandatory. All procurement activities are conducted in an open and competitive manner while ensuring compliance with Federal, State and local regulations.

All City departments are responsible for the identification, evaluation and selection of products and services under the guidance of the procurement office. The procurement office is solely responsible for issuance of all purchase orders. Please be advised that all vendors/contractors are required to obtain a purchase order or signed contract from the City prior to providing goods or services to the City of Avondale.

Gifts and Gratuities
The acceptance of gifts and/or gratuities is not acceptable at the City of Avondale. We recognize our responsibility to maintain professional relationships with all suppliers which we believe can be done without gifts or gratuities interfering with and/or influencing employees. As such, the City’s Procurement Code prohibits the acceptance by its employees of gifts and/or gratuities from any supplier or potential supplier. 

Sales Calls and Contacts
Office hours are from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday. Please be sure to make a scheduled appointment before coming to the Procurement Office to ensure availability and time for your visit.
