The Procurement Department is the central purchasing and materials management agency for the City of Philadelphia. The department’s stated goal is to acquire services, supplies, equipment and construction at lowest price that meets needs while ensuring a fair and open process.
The City of Philadelphia Procurement Department maintains a bid mailing list for most of the products and services it purchases. When a company representative completes and sends in a Bid Mailing List Application, the company is placed on the mailing list. For service, supply, and equipment bids, registered vendors receive bids for the product or service in the areas of interest indicated. For public works bids, vendors receive the notices of advertised bids, not the actual bids. All bids are advertised in the newspaper.
