The Procurement Office serves the City of Hampton, Hampton City Schools and the Hampton Roads Regional Academy of Criminal Justice. We are responsible for all formal bid transactions, procurements related to construction, professional services, transactions requiring performance bonding, annual contracts for goods, materials and supplies.
Procurement laws may require you to submit a surety bond with your bid in the form of a certified or cashier's check or bid bond. This requirement will be stated in the bid instructions.
The Procurement Office will attempt to mail notices for formal bids to prospective vendors. Notices are also posted on a bid board located in the office and advertised in the Tuesday edition of the Daily Press under "Legal Notices - Advertisements for Bid" in the classified section.
The City of Hampton has created a formal process for submitting unsolicited proposals for private development of publicly held real estate. The process is used by the city to review and respond to unsolicited proposals regarding the purchase, lease, or development of publicly held real estate property for non-public use. If you wish to submit a proposal for any properties advertised, please review the guidelines (PDF) for unsolicited proposals.
A proposal will be considered if it is determined to be financially feasible, in conformance with city goals and development objectives, and the unsolicited proposal criteria, and the property is not land banked for future use.
Proposals for land owned by the Hampton Economic Development Authority or Hampton Redevelopment and Housing Authority will be directed to the owner of record and considered in accordance with the entity's specific policies and guidelines. Information on publicly held land is provided without any representation, warranty or guarantee, express or implied, as to accuracy. The City of Hampton shall not be responsible for errors, omissions, withdrawal, or prior lease/sale.
PPEA Proposals for Public Infrastructure
The city also has a policy for submitting proposals under the Public-Private Education Facilities and Infrastructure Act of 2002, or PPEA. See the guidelines (PDF).
