Agenda Item Summary:
The Council has previously tied its delegation of authority for Department Directors to enter into contracts on behalf of the City to the state law bid limits. Competitive bidding was required for most purchases over $25,000, but that limit has increased to $50,000. Subsection 3.04.090B was never updated to reflect a tie to state bid limits – it remained at $25,000. This change is needed to align all of our purchasing and contracting authority with the competitive bidding requirements of state law.
