Title
An Ordinance to Amend Sections 1:312, 1:313 and 1:314 of Chapter 14, Purchasing, Contracting, and Selling Procedure, of Title I of the Code of the City of Ann Arbor (Ordinance No. ORD-09-16)
Memorandum
Approval of this Ordinance will amend portions of Chapter 14 to reflect changes in bidding to incorporate electronic submission of bids providing the methods used retain the integrity of the competitive bid process.

The recommended amendments are based on review by the Procurement Service Unit and the City Attorney’s Office of available options used by the State of Michigan and other governmental agencies to solicit bids. It is anticipated that implementation of electronic bidding procedures will improve service to vendors as well as provide the City a greener, more cost effective alternative to the traditional paper process.

Additionally the recommended amendments will authorize the Purchasing Agent to continue to adapt the City’s competitive purchasing methods as new purchasing technologies become available.
