The Kannapolis Purchasing Division is responsible for the procurement of goods and services for all City departments. Our intention is to obtain the best value for the tax dollars spent from the lowest responsive, responsible bidder. The City seeks to carry out the purchasing process in the best overall interest of the City, in accordance with the NC General Statues.

Doing business with the City

Potential suppliers who wish to do business with the City are encouraged to send a business card or other listing of products / service offered. A vendor information form should also be submitted to Purchasing.  All suppliers doing business with the City must also submit a W-9 form.

A completed vendor information form does not entitle a supplier to any particular solicitation. It is the potential bidder’s responsibility to periodically check for bids.

If a meeting is required with the Purchasing Agent, please call for an appointment.

Current RFPs and Bids

Surplus Property

The City disposes of surplus property for purchase by the general public through online auction at GovDeals.  Throughout the year, surplus items are added as they become available, allowing the City to auction property on an ongoing basis.

To use Govdeals, visit and search for “Kannapolis”, or you can go directly to the City’s auction page.

NOTE: In order to bid on an item, you must register with GovDeals. Make sure you read the agreement stating Terms and Conditions. It is NOT necessary to register to check what is available.

Occasionally, the City does not use or have a need any longer for surplus items. Pursuant to the NC General Statute 160A-280 (Conveyance of Property), the City is authorized to transfer City property to a governmental unit, sister city, nonprofit, or charter school. Notices will be posted according to law.
