OPEN PROCUREMENT FEATURES

 

This initiative opened the procurement process to small businesses and entrepreneurs by making the process of doing business with the City less costly and confusing.

FIVE CHALLENGES COMPLETED

 

We have completed five challenges, including Launch, Do Grow, Beach Life Challenge, and more.
