Bidding & Contract Opportunities

The City of Healdsburg makes purchases and establishes contracts for a wide variety of supplies, services, equipment, and expert assistance to provide our community a full range of municipal services and programs. In general, the contract administration of public works construction projects including Capital Improvement Projects, is the responsibility of both the Administration and Public Works Department; the Purchasing Division is responsible for centralized procurement of goods and technical or maintenance services; and all city departments may advertise for and select design consultants.

The city is continually seeking vendors, suppliers, and contractors who can provide quality products and services at competitive prices. Potential vendors should keep in mind that the City of Healdsburg purchasing policy requires that procurement of materials, supplies, equipment, vehicles, services and construction services be done in a manner to encourage open competition through competitive bidding or competitive sealed proposals. This site contains brief descriptions of current bid and contract opportunities and will direct you to a contact person who will provide more detailed.

The City of Healdsburg is responsible for the operation of municipal services, parks and recreation centers, public works construction, public safety (fire and police), water and sewer service, and the maintenance of city owned streets and facilities. Public Works may be defined as any project which includes the erection, construction, alteration, painting, repair or improvement of any public structure, building or road (California Public Contract Code).
