The City of Wheat Ridge Purchasing and Contracting Division is responsible for providing procurement of goods, equipment, services, and construction as needed for City operations. This Division also assists in negotiating and administering contracts for services.
It is the goal of the Purchasing Division to consider best value of a product or service and to minimize the overall total cost. Discretionary purchases up to $3,000 are acquired by the various departments using a City purchasing (VISA) card.
Departments seek documented quotes for goods costing $3,001-$25,000 and for services of $10,000-$25,000. The Purchasing Division is required to formally bid supplies and equipment over $25,001, services over $25,001, and construction projects over $50,001.
