The City of Turlock makes its purchases under authority granted in the State of California Public Contract Code and the Turlock Municipal Code. The City purchases most of its materials, supplies, equipment and services through a centralized purchasing system managed by the City Purchasing Agent.
Our mission is to provide City departments with quality and cost-effective products and services at a fair, competitive price in a timely manner.
Purchases are made by competitive bidding procedures that are not subject to negotiations. Awards are made to the lowest responsible bidder meeting the bid specifications.
The City is committed to provide maximum opportunities for small, disadvantaged, minority, women and Turlock business enterprises to compete successfully in supplying our needs for products and services. We do this by placing a high priority on outreach, conducting business workshops, and contacting businesses through trade fairs and local, minority and women business associations.
