The City of Surprise’s procurement is based on the City Council-approved “Procurement Code.” Procurement divisions include Purchasing & Mailroom.

The amount of an individual expenditure, for a specific commodity or service, determines the level of competition required.

Formal Bid/Proposals - Formal bids and proposal solicitations are required to be issued when the cost of procurement exceeds $50,000.

Licensing Requirements – A City of Surprise Business License is NOT required to submit a bid or a proposal but must be obtained prior to finalization of the Award Notification. This requirement includes businesses within the municipal limits of Surprise and those who may be physically located outside of the municipal limits but enter the city to conduct business or perform services.
