Welcome to the Division of Purchasing!

The Purchasing Division works with businesses in an ethical and effective way to provide goods and services to the city in support of day-to-day operations. We find the highest quality at the best price, following the rules and regulations of the New Jersey Local Public Contracts Law. We support minority-owned, woman-owned, and local businesses wherever possible.

First, the division supervises the bidding process by advertising bids for goods or services. Interested businesses submit quotes or bid proposals, which are reviewed by purchasing agents, who reward the contracts to vendors on behalf of the City.


Jersey City Wants to Do Business with You is a seminar that teaches diverse business owners how to secure public contracts with Jersey City. Presented in collaboration with the Division of Purchasing and Jersey City Economic Development Corporation, these seminars cover everything from placing a bid to obtaining a small business loan.

We encourage certified businesses to submit proposals for open public contracts, especially:

  •  Minority-owned businesses
  •  Women-owned businesses
  •  Veteran-owned businesses
  • Disabled-owned businesses
  •  LGBTQ-owned businesses
  •  Small businesses
