The City of Henderson’s Purchasing Division provides cost effective procurement of high quality goods and services to support City operations through facilitation of the City’s purchasing process. Included in this process are the issuance of purchase orders; preparation and advertisement of formal Invitations for Bid and Requests for Proposal on non-construction related goods and services; disposition of surplus inventory; oversight of the City’s Environmentally Preferable Purchasing Program; and monitoring of Citywide purchasing activity for compliance with state purchasing laws and City purchasing policies and procedures. 

The City is transitioning from manual bidding with document distribution by DemandStar to electronic bidding using a new regional supplier registration and bidding platform, the Nevada Gov eMarketplace. During this transition, please check both systems for bid opportunities. There is no charge for using either service. During the transition period, some new solicitations may still be posted to DemandStar. Historical award data originally posted to DemandStar will remain available there.
