The City and County Purchasing Divisions consolidated our functions on November 1, 2009. The City/County Procurement is now physically located at City Hall, 129 N. 2nd Street. City Hall will be your one-stop shop for all of your Purchasing needs for both the City and the County.




City of Yakima/Yakima County Purchasing Division is proud to announce that we will now be using “Public Purchase”, a web based e-Procurement service.  In order to begin or continue to receive bid notifications as a current vendor you must register with this new system, which is FREE for you to use.  This vendor registration process is only for goods and purchased services procured by the Purchasing Division.  It does not include or affect Yakima County “Public Works”, Yakima County’s Small Works Roster, or the MRSC Roster that the City uses for Public Work projects and any Architect & Engineering Rosters.
