Our objective is to acquire needed goods and services as efficiently and as inexpensively as possible while assuring fair and equal opportunity to all qualified vendors. To achieve this objective, we seek to foster as much competition as possible while ensuring fairness to all who wish to compete for the opportunity to sell to the City of Madera. Purchasing - Central Supply's primary function is to assist other City Departments in their procurement efforts, securing materials and services which meet necessary standards. Concurrently, Purchasing - Central Supply monitors the procurement process to ascertain compliance with applicable laws.
Department personnel prepares the City's procurement program; establish standards for quality assurance; purchase products and services, and administer contracts. The staff prepares specifications and schedule purchases; develop advantageous contractual terms; solicit and evaluate bids; award and administer contracts; place legal advertisements; prepare contract documents; maintain procurement records for all City departments, and formulate policy for the disposition of excess and/or obsolete material. Functioning as a major business office of the City with the vendor community, Purchasing - Central Supply strives to promote goodwill through sound business practices, efficient operations, and supporting the purchase of recycled and environmentally preferred products while providing the greatest value for the tax dollar.
The City's policy is to encourage the purchase of supplies, services, and equipment from vendors located within the City's boundaries. Local vendors are sellers, vendors, suppliers, and contractors who maintain places of business located within the City's limits and who have a current City of Madera business license. The local vendor preference shall not apply to those contracts where State or Federal law or other laws or regulations preclude such a preference.
The City of Madera invites the public to participate in our auction of surplus items. Periodically, public agencies will sell vehicles, equipment, furniture, and other property that have reached the end of their useful life or no longer serve a purpose for the agency. This is done through public auction. The City uses a third-party vendor (Public Surplus) for the purposes of public auctions. Items are sold as-is and you will need to register to bid on an item (registration is free, however, you may be required to pay a buyer’s premium to Public Surplus if you win the bid(s) for the item(s) you are bidding on).
