COMPREHENSIVE PROCUREMENT PROCESS

HART uses a comprehensive system of specifications and competitive bidding procedures to procure essential goods and services for Hillsborough County’s transit system. This process saves significant dollars by awarding contracts to the lowest respondent who meets the project's specifications, complies with all the terms and can deliver the service or product within the designated timeframe. ​

    ​​We purchase the basic goods and services required to maintain and manage public transit. This includes:
  • Parts, supplies, services and equipment to run the buses, trolleys and administrative offices
  • Construction, buses, trolleys and equipment to continue developing the transit system​
  • Professional services​

PROCUREMENT POLICIES, PROCEDURES AND GUIDELINES

To ensure fairness and equal access to solicitations for all qualified bidders, HART has established standardized procurement processes and follows the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) guidelines.

Policies, procedures and guidelines have been provided as a courtesy and are available for review as vendors are encouraged to become familiar with the procurement process.
