The mission of the Purchasing Division is to procure and inventory the equipment, supplies and services needed by all departments to carry out their mission of serving the citizens of Santa Clara. Purchasing strives to procure the required materials and services in the appropriate quantity, delivered in a timely manner, through the competitive bidding process.

This division also operates the Electric and Water Utilities warehouse and disposes of surplus material by the most practical means to gain maximum return for the City.
Announcing New ACH Payment Method
The Finance department is pleased to announce that we have successfully launched a new payment method for vendors/customers doing business with the City. It is called Automated Clearing House or ACH payment processing. ACH Payment Service is an efficient and cost-reducing alternative to paper checks that enables the City to make electronic payments directly to vendors and customers.
ACH payment processing is an extremely simple and efficient method for making payments. With ACH processing, vendor/customer funds are usually cleared in 1 or 2 days, much quicker than the traditional payment method. ACH processing also sends an e-mail confirmation to let recipients know the amount and the date funds are expected to credit to their accounts.
To enroll, complete the ACH Enrollment Form.
If you have any questions, please contact Accounts Payable at: AP@SantaClaraCA.gov or 408-615-2363.
