Purchasing Guide

The City of Crystal Lake’s Purchasing Process strives to insure that taxpayers receive the maximum value for each dollar spent by purchasing quality products and services at the lowest possible cost.

Prospective vendors are encouraged to review the purchasing guide. This guide lists the broad variety of products we buy. In addition, the guide provides important information on the purchasing process and policies at the City.

Purchase Order Terms and Conditions

Any Discrepancies must be reconciled with the City’s buyer before this order is filled. These online Terms and Conditions are for all Purchase Orders issued after August 6, 2018.
