If you’d like to stay better informed on how the city spends its money and who receives city contracts, Aurora makes it easy with a weekly report of purchasing activity.

The Aurora City Council recently approved updates to the city’s purchasing code intended to streamline the purchasing process for more timely and efficient delivery of goods, services and construction. As part of the changes, more contracts and change orders are placed on the weekly procurement activity report. This report, which is typically available on Mondays, is sent to City Council members and available for public review at

Council members have the right to call up most items from the report for consideration at a council meeting, and items that aren’t called up are authorized to move forward without delay. This reduces both the amount of time needed to implement contracts and the uncertainty faced by businesses waiting for contract approval.

Among the other purchasing code changes approved by council, the threshold for conducting formal written bids or negotiated requests for proposals processes has been raised to $50,000. Informal processes for lower contract amounts have been put in place by the city’s Office of Purchasing Services.

“We’re constantly looking for ways to improve our delivery of city services, and the changes approved by City Council help ensure we are efficient and transparent with purchases,” said Bryn Fillinger, manager of Purchasing Services. “We want our residents to know their money is being spent wisely, and our contractors to know that Aurora is a straight-forward and open place to do business.”
