Our Procurement Department is the central purchasing and materials management department for CHA.
The mission of the Procurement Department is to acquire services, supplies, equipment and construction at the most efficient level. The department ensures that all vendors receive fair and equitable treatment when working with our organization. Our Procurement Department works diligently to accomplish its mission while complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws.
When we are ready to select a vendor for business, a separate request for proposal (RFP) will be issued to those who qualify. A qualified vendor is one that has been qualified through the RFQ process. All RFPs are managed through eBIDS.
We occasionally issue requests for qualifications (RFQs) to update our list of qualified developers and vendors. The purpose of this process is to establish a qualified “pool” of vendors for a particular service or material needed by CHA to conduct daily business. It is possible that an RFQ may be issued without having a current business opportunity to offer.
