Vendor Help Center

Welcome to the Vendor Help Center. The information contained herein is designed to help you navigate through the maze of how to do business with the city of Phoenix. Unlike other agencies, the city of Phoenix does not have one central location for all types of procurement. Below is a list of the responsible departments/divisions and what type of opportunities they offer.

• The Street Transportation Department  is responsible for Capital Improvement Projects (construction), including consulting and subcontracting.

• The Procurement (Purchasing) Division is responsible for procuring goods and general services and a very limited number of professional services.

• Most professional services and general goods/services purchases under $1000 are the responsibility of the various city departments. Contact the Business Liaison for the appropriate department for more information. For current opportunities, go to the solicitations page.  For information on award recommendations/awards, see the Award Recommendation page.

• The Equal Opportunity Department is responsible for the city's Small Business certification program.
