Introduction

The City of Fort Collins has established a centralized Purchasing Division responsible for the procurement of goods and services in excess of $5,000.

Commodity purchases are accomplished by issuance of a numbered purchase order authorized by the Purchasing Agent. Professional services are secured by contract and supported by issuance of a purchase order. Orders under $5,000 can be issued by City departments on mini orders. Purchases may also be made using a purchasing card. Orders over $5,000 must be issued by the Purchasing Division.

The City always welcomes new vendors to join its list of quality suppliers for goods and services. We offer a Vendor Guide on "Selling to the City of Fort Collins" to inform all vendors of our purchasing policies and general information. If we can answer any questions, please call us. Vendor registration information is given above. The Vendor Guide is attached for your convenience.

Post Contract Award

Vendors selected and awarded a contract by the City will be required to submit a W-9, Request for Taxpayer Identification Number and Certification prior to contract award. Vendors are also encouraged to participate in the direct pay program by completing a Vendor Direct Deposit Authorization Form. Participating in the direct pay program will ensure the timeliest payment by the City while supporting the City's sustainability objectives. The W-9 Form and the Vendor Direct Deposit Authorization Form are attached for your convenience.
