Office of Contracting and Procurement

The mission of the Office of Contracting and Procurement is to support the strategic contracting and procurement of materials, equipment and services that are essential to providing governmental services for citizens of Detroit.

The contracting and procurement services provided will support the operations of the City departments who provide services to the public.

The Office of Contracting and Procurement is composed of the following divisions:

Urgent Supplier Notice

Do not begin any work with any City Of Detroit agency or department, unless you have a signed contract or purchase order from the Office of Contracting and Procurement.

If you violate this policy you will not get paid.

Any invoices submitted with dates before a contract or purchase order is approved and signed by the Chief Procurement Officer, will not be honored.


Attention Suppliers

We are excited to announce enhancements to the Supplier Portal.

Along with managing your company’s profile (like changing your address, adding and removing contacts), you will be able to enter your Bids, Bid Responses, and send your required documents using the Supplier Portal. It will be your 1-Stop Shop!
