Decentralized Purchasing System
The City of Napa has a decentralized procurement structure with oversight of all procurement activities by the Purchasing Division. The Purchasing Division standardizes bidding and evaluation procedures, seeks economy of scale benefits balanced by timely delivery of goods, and strives to ensure consistent, transparent practices through a fair and competitive procurement process.
Our goal is to ensure that Napa taxpayers receive the maximum value for every expenditure and that all expenditures are conducted in a manner that preserves the public trust. Toward that goal, the Purchasing Division encourages qualified vendors to participate in doing business with the City of Napa.
The City of Napa uses an online bid management system called Public Purchase. Please register with Public Purchase if you want to do business with the City.
