The City of Brentwood’s purchasing program is dedicated to the principles of competition and fairness, as well as ensuring that City of Brentwood taxpayers receive the best value for every expenditure. It is the intent of the City of Brentwood to promote an open, free market competition when soliciting bids and proposals for the purpose of public procurement. Submitted bids will be given fair and equal consideration and are uniformly solicited, evaluated and awarded on a non-discriminatory basis.
All purchasing decisions made on behalf of the City will take into consideration such factors as price, quality, past performance and economy. Whenever bids are required under the City's purchasing program, the City reserves the right to reject any or all bids, to waive any informalities or irregularities in a bid received and to accept any bid which it determines to be for the best interest of the city. The objective of the bid process is to select the overall lowest and best bid.
Detailed regulations governing City purchases can be found in Chapter 2, Article V, Section 2-209 of the Brentwood Municipal Code. A bid protest policy is also available for vendors wishing to challenge solicitations or awards of bids.
For bids involving expenditures of $10,000 or more, official bid notices are published in a local newspaper and posted on this website. Call Karen Harper at (615) 371-0060 for more information about a specific bid or proposal.
