The Purchasing Division's primary purpose is to acquire goods and/or services offering the best value, consistent with required specifications, from responsive and responsible vendors so that proper and efficient operations are maintained within the City through procedures bound together by ethics, integrity, and professionalism.

Business Opportunities
Current Solicitations (i.e., Invitations to Bid, or ITBs; and Request for Proposals, or RFPs) for goods and services valued over the formal solicitation threshold of $25,000 are listed on this website. Formal solicitations which have been closed and are either under review or which have been approved by City Commission may be viewed by clicking Closed Solicitation on the left hand column. Once a contract resulting from a formal solicitation is awarded, the commission resolution approving the award is posted. The City posts advertisements for current solicitations in the Daytona Beach News-Journal, on the bulletin board in the City Hall Purchasing Office (Room 146) as well as on this web page. Many solicitations are also posted at Informal quotes for purchases under $25,000 are obtained by the department needing the goods or services, and are not posted on-line.

Vendors seeking to do business with the City of Daytona Beach are encouraged to review the Doing Business With the City flyer. Those vendors who want to be notified when formal solicitations are issued for goods and services they offer may register online through Vendor Registration. This enables the vendor to receive email notifications for formal solicitations and also makes their information available for staff seeking informal quotes. Once registered, vendors may update their information such as addresses, phone numbers, email, and commodities offered through Vendor Login. Vendor registration is not required but will allow the vendor to be notified by email when a solicitation for goods or services which they offer becomes available.

Local Preference
The City has a local preference ordinance for formal solicitations. The Local Preference clause may be found in the Purchasing Code, Chapter 30-86 of the City's Code of Ordinances. Some solicitations prohibit the application of local preference. For ITB’s, if a vendor meeting the Purchasing Code’s definition of a “local vendor” submits a bid that is within 10% of the lowest bid, then the local vendor and lowest (non-local) vendor will have the opportunity to submit a best and final offer that is equal to or lower than the amount of their original bid. Local preference provisions are also in place for RFP’s
