Finance Department - Purchasing

The City of Red Bluff is governed by the rules and regulations of its Municipal Code.

Purchasing Responsibilities
The purchasing division is responsible for the procurement of supplies and services the city needs for efficient operation and maintenance. To provide these supplies and services at the lowest possible cost, almost everything is purchased through the competitive bid process. We have an obligation to the citizens of Red Bluff to obtain the maximum value for the money we spend and at the same time provide reliable service.

City Contracts
The purchasing division maintains a list of vendors who ask to be notified when certain types of goods and services are bid. Your name can be added to the roster by submitting a list of the supplies or services you offer, together with your firm's name, address, and telephone number. When the city solicits informal or formal bids, the list is consulted by the purchasing officer to obtain an appropriate list of bidders. The city is not obligated to contract all bidders when soliciting bids. In addition, legal advertisements will be published when required.
