There are three areas of procurement for which DURA solicits competitive bids: procurement of administrative goods and services for the agency, solicitation of pre-qualified contractors to bid on construction services for DURA’s Housing programs, and solicitation of consultants and developers in association with DURA Redevelopment projects.

To learn more about DURA’s program activities, go to the Housing and Redevelopment sections of this website. Information on current DURA procurement opportunities is listed below.

Procurement of Administrative Goods and Services

DURA is committed to open and full competition in the procurement of goods and services; to assuring that goods and services are procured efficiently, effectively and at the most favorable prices available; to providing guidelines and procedures for utilizing and maintaining a procurement system of quality and integrity; and to assuring that all procurement actions are in compliance with all applicable federal, state and local laws. In addition, DURA is committed to promoting procurement opportunities utilizing minority and women owned business enterprises (MBE/WBE) and small business enterprises (SBE).

On an as needed basis, the Authority solicits services from consultants and developers in association with Redevelopment projects. In these cases, the Authority advertises in local publications and any relevant publications deemed desirable by the Authority to affect MBE/WBE/SBE participation.

Pre-qualified Contractors for DURA’s Housing programs

On an on-going basis, DURA’s Housing Rehabilitation programs invite eligible contractors to be pre-qualified to bid on construction contracts during the current program year. Periodically, the Authority advertises in a local publication and any relevant outlets deemed desirable by the Authority to solicit qualified contractors and to encourage MBE/WBE/SBE participation in the Authority’s housing programs. The qualified contractor list is updated as often as new qualified contractors are accepted for inclusion.

For a list of current contractors for DURA’s housing rehabilitation programs, please contact DURA at (303) 534-3872.
