The Purchasing Division contracts for a wide variety of supplies, materials, equipment, and services for all city departments. For purchases over $7,000, requests for quotes, bids, or proposals may be issued through Brea’s eProcurement Portal. Bid results are posted online, and orders for material, equipment and supplies are typically awarded to the lowest responsive and responsible bidder.
Purchasing is also responsible for the disposal of the City’s obsolete or surplus equipment and scrap materials. The division adheres to the Standards of Purchasing Practice of the California Association of Public Purchasing Officers to ensure that suppliers are treated fairly and the City’s interests are protected. The City welcomes new contractors, suppliers, and vendors and encourages them to register for electronic notifications of our contracting opportunities.
