Our goal in the Purchasing Office is to procure goods and services at the best value for the City of Eugene using the most efficient and effective methods possible. We do this while abiding by state and local rules & regulations as well. In order to maintain good stewardship of public funds and support City values, the City often considers equity and sustainability factors, as well as cost, when making purchases. To learn more about these factors, and find resources, visit the Sustainable Purchasing page or the Equity in Contracting page.

The City of Eugene uses Oregon Procurement Information Network (ORPIN) to post solicitation notices. ORPIN is being replaced on July 1, 2021 by a new eProcurement system, OregonBuys. From June 16 – 30, ORPIN will be read-only and no new solicitation notifications will be posted there. Solicitations advertised during that time will be posted on the Notices tab below.
On July 1, the City of Eugene will begin using OregonBuys to:
- notify vendors of contracting opportunities
- post bid and proposal documents
- receive bids and proposals electronically
- post Notices of Intent for cooperative procurements and sole source purchases
- share opportunities and contract awards.
To be notified of opportunities
