The Purchasing Department is the office responsible for the acquisition of goods and services for the City of Flint. The Purchasing Department maintains a competitive bidding process in accordance with Federal and State laws, regulation, and the Cityís Ordinances to procure goods and services. It is the Purchasing Departmentís policy to encourage the business community to participate in the bidding process. The department is also responsible for the disposal of all municipal property and equipment.

Purchase Cycle: Departments are to prepare a requisition for all purchases of goods and services and wait for a purchase order from the Purchasing Department before goods are ordered. A Department may receive quotes from a vendor; however, it must be stressed to the vendor that your department is just ascertaining pricing information only and not an order.
