Current Purchasing Contract Opportunities

A department within Denver Water may require specific services or supplies. Our Purchasing section, acting as a agent, conducts the formal solicitation process. In most cases, our Purchasing section uses the Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing System (RMEPS) to solicit bidder’s proposals. Interested parties who want to do business with Denver Water Purchasing should sign up through RMEPS. There is no cost to join. However, if interested parties wish to be notified automatically of Denver Water Purchasing bid opportunities, a nominal fee is required by RMEPS. Unless otherwise noted, all pertinent documents can be accessed through RMEPS.

Potential Future Purchasing Contract Opportunities

Some of these contracts are for one-time or project-based services that may not be repeated, are subject to an approved manufacturers list, or may be extended with the current supplier. Appearance on this list does not guarantee a contract opportunity will be forthcoming. In most cases, the Solicitation (IFB, RFP) will occur 3 to 4 months before the contract expiration date.
