Purchasing Policy

City Logo

The purchasing policy and procedure manual for the City of Columbia has been developed to serve as a guide to procuring goods and services used by City Departments.  The policies are designed to reflect applicable federal and state laws as well as local ordinances. City Council is responsible for the establishment of purchasing policy.


This manual was adopted by City Council on February 11, 2016  and supersedes all previously issued policies, procedures, manuals, instructions or directives.
