How to Do Business with the City of University Park

The Purchasing Department strives to ensure that responsible vendors have fair and competitive access to business with the City, purchases are compliant with state regulations and that the City gets the best possible value when spending taxpayer dollars.

The City's Purchasing Division oversees procurement of the supplies, materials, and equipment needed to deliver service to the City's residents. Purchasing is also responsible for procuring construction services and professional services according to the guidelines set forth in the Texas Local Government Code.

Suppliers are encouraged to visit with the city departmental users; however, in exercising professional courtesy, it is recommended to first visit with the Purchasing Division. Purchasing staff can direct the supplier to the department(s) who utilizes their specific products and/or services.

The City uses Periscope S2G (formerly called BidSync) to post all sealed bids/RFPs and some informal requests for quotes. Join our vendor list by registering online. Registration is free and registrants will automatically receive notices if the City posts a bid or RFP for products or services matching the vendor's business profile as created in Periscope.
