Vendor Information

Commitment to Vendors and Contractors

We believe in competition; therefore, the Purchasing Office is committed to giving all vendors and contractors an equal chance to do business with the City of The Colony. The Purchasing Agent will treat vendors fairly and with respect. If you feel you haven't been treated properly, please let us know.

Vendors will be seen between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is strongly suggested that you make an appointment or call before you come to the purchasing office. The City doesn't want you to waste your time if there is not going to be anyone available to see you.

Encourage Participation

The City wants all qualified vendors of goods and services to participate in the bidding process. We do not give preferences to any vendors; however, we encourage participation by businesses located within the city limits of The Colony and by Historically Underutilized Businesses (HUB'S). Certain contracts funded in part by the Federal Government have specific goals for HUB participation.

Non-Discrimination Policy

The City's policy is not to allow discrimination against any individual or company based on a person's age, sex, religion, or national origin. All employees and contractors working for the City of The Colony shall adhere to this policy.

How to Obtain Requests for Bids or Proposals

All Requests For Bids (RFB) or Proposals (RFP) that cost $50,000 or more are advertised in The Colony Courier-Leader. Bids and Proposals will state a reply by date. Replies received after the stated date will not be accepted. No Requests For Bids or Requests For Proposals will be mailed to vendors unless formally requested. Bids (RFB) will also be posted on the BidSync website.
