We look forward to doing business with you. Our interactive Purchasing web site has been developed with the intent to provide the user with information which will allow for a productive relationship with the City of New Haven. The side menu provides an overview of what is contained in the site such as Procurement Policy, General Information, Department Contacts, FAQ and so much more.

Prospective vendors can register to be notified via E-mail of current procurement opportunities and view the submission results on-line. Anyone can register and download the procurement documents without any costs or fees.
