Contract Administration

Contract Administration is responsible for managing the contracting process for the City of Chicago.  Once a City Department identifies and defines a need, it is brought to DPS to procure the needed goods or services.

  • The City does not have a "preferred vendors" list.
  • Vendors do not need to be pre-registered or register with the City to submit a bid or proposal.
  • DPS does maintain pre-qualified vendor pools for Architecture and Engineering services, various professional services and demolition services.
