About Us Procurement


It is the intent of the Downtown District to obtain the highest quality, most cost-effective goods and services through a competitive procurement of services 

The District shall attempt to stimulate the growth of disadvantage businesses by encouraging the full participation of disadvantaged businesses in all phases of its procurement activities and affording those disadvantaged businesses a full and fair opportunity to compete for District contracts. The purpose of the program is to increase participation of disadvantaged businesses in public contract awards. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the District will objectively demonstrate good faith efforts to award at least fifteen percent (15%) of the value of non-personnel contract lettings and purchasing to disadvantaged businesses.
