Vendor Policy & Procedure Manual

The Purchasing Division has developed this hand book as a guide to assist businesses who wish to provide goods and services to the City of San Marcos (the "City"). To meet the needs of City government, the Purchasing Division and the user departments regularly purchase a variety of different commodities. To fulfill these needs in a fair and cooperative manner, we encourage vendors to be familiar with and follow the guidelines set forth.

Prospective bidders should especially note the procedures for submitting a bid and compiling with its specific requirements. These procedures include local policies and those required under the Local Government Code.

The City seeks to achieve an effective procedural agreement which will benefit both parties. To accomplish, this we invite all responsible vendors to seek to do business with the City.

If you have any questions concerning the policies and procedures set forth in this guide, please contact the Purchasing Division.
