The City of Phoenix Finance Department is offering training to local landscape businesses to help land a contract with the city. There are 400 locations across Phoenix that require landscaping, and the city is nearing the end of a 5-year, $24.6 million dollar landscaping contract.
In hopes to spread the wealth to smaller, underrepresented businesses, Phoenix will be hosting a series of online training webinars for local landscape companies to attend in Spring of 2022. During these webinars, hear from city and industry leaders on topics that can help improve your chances of receiving a bid.
The City of Phoenix is partnering with Local First Arizona to host a virtual educational webinar on January 27, 2022, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., to help local landscape companies navigate the city’s public contract process.
“The City of Phoenix Finance Department hopes to lock down multiple contracts with many landscape businesses across Phoenix to bring in guaranteed money for local businesses,” said T.J. Martin, Assistant Finance Director. “The goal is to offer help to the local small businesses who may previously have been lost in the procurement process.”
The City of Phoenix had a budgeted $24.6 million contract for landscaping between 2017 and 2022, almost $5 million annually! That contract expires on May 31, 2022, and Phoenix is looking for new, small business landscapers to contract with and share a piece of the pie!
Local landscaping businesses interested should register online. If you have any questions contact the Finance Department at 602-262-7166.
