Contracts and Procurement
The City of Gainesville follows a centralized business model with each department handling all non-construction goods and services for themselves.  Construction and Engineering requests for proposals are administered by the Administration Department.  

The City of Gainesville is committed to providing financial transparency.  As such, we make every effort to deliver financial information that is readily accessible and available for our citizens.  Our mission is to provide quality service to our customers and vendors, by implementing and supporting processes that provide timely, cost-effective, and high-quality contracts. With the implementation of the Transparency Stars Program by the State Comptroller of Public Accounts, there is an additional standard of excellence that the City of Gainesville will strive to achieve.  

To learn more about the Comptroller's efforts to encourage transparency among local government agencies, please visit www.texastransparency.org.
