Doing Business with the City of Spokane


The central goal of the City's Purchasing Department is to provide quality goods and services needed by City departments in a cost effective and timely manner. We must maintain the highest ethical standards and follow good business practices. We value our partnerships with vendors, contractors, and suppliers and view these relationships as business partnerships where all parties are expected to coordinate in order to produce superior results for the citizens of the City of Spokane.


The City uses several different methods for procuring goods and services. These methods include obtaining price quotes, using state contracts, obtaining Requests for Qualifications (RFQu), Request for Proposals (RFP), and obtaining informal or formal bids. The purchasing method used is defined by the type and dollar amount of the purchase. All purchasing processes are governed by State Law, the Spokane Municipal Code and City Policies and Procedures.

All formal solicitations are advertised in the City's Official Gazette

Public Bid Openings

Public Meetings are held for formal procurement solicitations to open submitted Bids and acknowledge submitted Proposals. Public Meetings will be held on-line on Mondays at 1:15 p.m., via WebEx Meetings when scheduled.
