Purchasing Policy

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, which has been adopted by ordinance with subsequent updates adopted by ordinance.

This policy and manual was last updated by the City Council on May 14, 2020 and supersedes previously issued policies, procedures, manuals, instructions or directives.
