The Procurement Division Mission is to safeguard public funds by acquiring goods and services for the best price; assure that responsible vendors are given a fair opportunity to compete for the County's business; manage public bid and contract administration, dispose of surplus, obsolete or damaged equipment and supplies; and manage county inventories in a safe, clean environment; provide timely delivery of items.
How To Get Bid Information and Register as a Vendor
Specifications, drawings, and plans for all formal bids and proposals are available on BidNet's Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System (RMEP).
In order to download bids and specifications vendors must register on the site. Registration is simple and there are two options for vendors including a search only option for free.
We utilize the RMEP’s registered vendor data base to find up to date information about providers of good and services for our quotes or informal bids.
The RMEP also contains information about the closed bids, bid amounts and awarded contracts for those items bid. Please visit the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System for many details about our closed and open projects.
The Procurement Division is responsible for the procurement of supplies, services, and construction in accordance with the Procurement Code, as well as the disposal of supplies and equipment for all County departments and offices.
