Executive Summary:

In the past, the City has developed and maintained a procurement policy on a somewhat informal basis. City Code and procurement practices have changed resulting in the need to revise the procurement policy.
Background:

The City of Independence has an important responsibility to its residents to carefully procure goods, construction services, and professional services by implementing the directives of the City Charter and City Code, which directs use of procurement policies and procedures to provide the best value at the lowest possible cost for all purchases made. This resolution will enable updates to the City's procurement policy that was first adopted in 2017, with Resolution No. 6222.
