Procurement administers the City's centralized purchasing system. Procurement is responsible for developing bid specifications jointly with City departments, obtaining bids through advertising and direct solicitation, establishing and monitoring price agreement contracts, and issuing purchase orders. Procurement maintains the register of professional and personal services consultants who are interested in working with the City of Dallas. Procurement, in coordination with Business Development Services (BDS), maintains a register of Dallas M/WBE companies in efforts to facilitate M/WBE participation in the procurement process. Purchasing also administers the sale and auctioning of City surplus property, impounded vehicles, City fleet, and unclaimed confiscated goods through public auctions.

The Business Development Services office is responsible for the ongoing development and implementation of the City of Dallas' Minority and Women-owned Business Enterprise (M/WBE) programs through Outreach and Assistance, Contract Compliance, and Audit Verification.

The ResourceLink Team, a division of BDS, is a group of Business Development and Procurement specialists who connect your business with the resources and information you need to do business with the City of Dallas. The ResourceLink Team provides outreach from the Business Development and Procurement Services department to help vendors access the City of Dallas’ $600 million of purchases per year. A primary responsibility of the ResourceLink Team is to increase and encourage the participation of the business community to sell their goods and services to the City of Dallas. The ResourceLink Team also will help link you to the City of Dallas’ online procurement website, register as a vendor, submit bids and more. Please call (214) 670-3326 to contact a ResourceLink Team Member.
