State Law (Local Government Code, Chapter 252: Purchasing and Contracting Authority of Municipalities) serves as the primary purchasing authority for the City of Bowie. In addition to several administrative updates, which further establish standard practices and procedures to create uniformity, economy, efficiency and effectiveness in our purchasing program, staff incorporated a major revision due to a change in statute. Specifically, the expenditure threshold increased from $25,000 to $50,000 in reference to competitive bidding and proposal requirements per Texas Senate Bill 1765.
Current Bid Opportunities are available on our website and provides the staff contact information and opening and closing dates of all current bid opportunities.
