The Business Services Department provides financial and procurement services to the City of Tucson and to our community. Within Business Services, our Shared Services Procurement Division is responsible for City contracting (and they are hereinafter referred to as Procurement). Procurement is dedicated to the principles of competition and fairness.
It operates under the auspices of federal, state, and local law and regulation. It assures that all public procurement practices are within the framework of the highest ethical standards. Procurement personnel are strictly prohibited from taking any actions which do not reflect the ideals of honor and integrity in the expenditure of public funds.
Our goal is to ensure that Tucson taxpayers receive the maximum value for every expenditure. Towards that goal, we encourage qualified vendors to participate in doing business with the City of Tucson.
The purpose of this information is to acquaint individuals who sell to the City with the procedures followed by the City of Tucson in carrying out procurement activities for the City.
