New Local Purchasing Preference To Be Applied To Contracts

In late 2015, Salinas City Council amended the City’s Local Purchasing Preference Ordinance to include professional services and Public Works contracts that exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000) (Sec.12-28.060).

Local Purchasing Preference (Article III A.) - In determining the lowest responsible, responsive bidder, bidders who qualify as a local business enterprise shall receive a ten-percent preference. If application of the ten-percent preference results in a responsible, responsive local business enterprise's bid being at or lower than the non-local business enterprise, the contract shall be awarded to the local business enterprise at the local business enterprise's bid amount.

In order to be recognized as a “local business”, contractors must submit a Declaration of Local Business form to the City’s Finance Department.
