The City of Southlake Finance Department is responsible for securing the best quality products and services through the most cost-effective means in accordance with all City policies and State and Federal Laws. In an effort to assist our current or prospective vendors in becoming familiar with the City's purchasing requirements and policies, please refer to our Purchasing Guide For Vendors pamphlet.
The purchasing staff extends bid opportunities, the goal of which is to obtain the "best value" for the City. This may not always mean the lowest price. We consider such things as reputation, product quality, customer service, totality of proposal, compliance with local, state and federal laws, cost, delivery and other criteria as required.
