About the Purchasing Division
The City of Pearland Purchasing Division is responsible for procurement of the materials, equipment, supplies and services necessary for City departments to perform their respective functions.  The City strives to obtain quality goods and services at competitive prices, while maintaining a fair and open environment for participating vendors. The City of Pearland Purchasing Division operates in accordance with the Texas Local Government Code, the Pearland City Charter and the City of Pearland Purchasing policy.

Bids for purchases and contracts valued in excess of $50,000 are advertised once a week for two consecutive weeks prior to the bid opening date in the local newspaper of record, currently the Pearland Journal.  It is the City's preference that all response documents be submitted electronically via the E-Bidding website described below; however, if you are unable to complete the bid package electronically, Vendors may submit a hard-copy of their bid to the City Secretary's Office at 3519 Liberty Drive, Suite 262, Pearland, Texas  77581.  Late bids will not be considered for award.  City Council has authority for the subsequent bid award.
