Subject
State Government
Published
10/28/2016

The purchase of goods and services by public entities in Colorado is generally governed by the state procurement code.  This code is designed to ensure the fair treatment of people seeking to do business with the state, to foster broad-based competition through a bidding process, and to save money on purchases made with state funds. This issue brief outlines the agencies and types of purchases subject to state procurement rules, explains the vendor selection process, discusses bidding and contracting for construction projects, and describes the types of preference that exist for awarding contracts.
