Bidders Application Packet

From Purchasing Officer

The Municipality of Anchorage purchases goods and services through the competitive bidding system. Requirements vary widely through the full range of commodities sold. As a result, the Municipality relies heavily upon the business community to supply its needs.

This bidder's application packet, which has been designed by the Purchasing Department, is an effort on the part of the Municipal government to expand the number of firms participating in Municipal business. Vendor participation is essential to the competitive bidding process, the basis of the Municipality's acquisition system.

Please accept my personal invitation to complete the application forms with the commodities and services and/or professional service part(s) which apply to your business and return them to the Purchasing Department. Prompt return will ensure that your firm will reside on the vendor database from which vendors are selected.

Your interest in doing business with the Municipality of Anchorage is sincerely appreciated. We look forward to a mutually beneficial business relationship.

Ronald S. Hadden, Purchasing Officer
