Welcome to the Department of Procurement Services.  We contract for over $2 billion of goods and services annually for the City of Chicago.  Our open bid and solicitation process ensures fairness, competition and best value. Procurement Services explores best solutions for Chicago's diverse needs.  We improve our contracts by using City of Chicago certified firms and green procurement initiatives.  We generate revenue through our auctions that promote reuse and recycling. All this is done by complying with various legislative parameters that guide us. 

Responsible vendors are encouraged to share in many contracting opportunities.

Attend one of our outreach events or click through our website to find out more on how to do business with the City of Chicago.
