The City of Apache Junction operates under a decentralized purchasing program. A decentralized purchasing program allows individual departments to buy goods or services.


To maximize the purchasing value of public funds by acquiring quality materials and services in a timely and cost effective manner, provide the resources departments need to perform their jobs, while maintaining an open and competitive bidding environment.


Our vision is to be influential in the field of public procurement and strategic sourcing, bringing value and efficiency to each procurement while operating within City code, statute and sound business practices.
