Doing Business with the City of Peoria

The principal objective of the City of Peoria Materials Management Division is to acquire quality goods and services that meet the City’s needs at a reasonable price while ensuring a fair and competitive process. This is accomplished through the use of sound, competitive procurement procedures.

In order to provide the best value for taxpayers and city departments, Materials Management is guided in its procurement procedures by several policy mandates, which include:

  • To conduct all procurement according to the Arizona State Law and the City of Peoria Procurement Code;
  • Conducting the City’s procurement process in an open, competitive and professional manner in which tax dollars are spent (invested) so as to assure maximum usage return.
  • Purchasing and contracting for supplies, services, equipment and construction to support City departments by obtaining at the right price, right time, right place, right quality, and right terms and conditions so they can accomplish their goals and objectives in a timely manner.
  • To maximize competition and provide interested and qualified vendors with the opportunity to offer their products or services to the City.
  • Conducting City procurement within the framework of federal, state and city law and in accordance with the policies and procedures established by the City Manager, always searching for the best business practices.
