Purchasing Division

The Purchasing Division is within the Department of General Services. The Division is responsible for acquiring goods and/or related services for City and County of Denver departments/agencies utilizing various governmental procurement best practices, including competitive bidding and direct, open market purchases. The Charter, Denver Revised Municipal Code (D.R.M.C.), and Fiscal Accountability Rules provide the legal authority, policy and procedure for the manner in which the Purchasing Division procures goods and services for agencies of the city.

Cooperative Purchasing

The Purchasing Division participates in cooperative procurement endeavors as provided for in the Denver Revised Municipal Code (Section Sec. 20-64.5). The Manager of General Services may authorize purchases of goods and services pursuant to any intergovernmental agreement which, in the opinion of the Manager of General Services, is in the best interest of the city. These types of agreements are not subject to the five year bidding requirement of the city.
