Purchasing Department

Purchasing Responsibilities
The City of Panama City has a centralized purchasing system administered by the Purchasing Department. Centralized purchasing standardizes bidding and evaluation procedures, achieves economy of scale benefits, provides consistency in dealing with suppliers and ensures an open, fair and competitive procurement process.

Our goal is to ensure that Panama City taxpayers receive the maximum value for every expenditure and that all expenditures are conducted in a manner that preserves the public trust. Towards that goal, we encourage qualified vendors to participate in doing business with the City of Panama City.
