METRO'S PROCUREMENT SERVICES facilitates the procurement and contracting process for all departments throughout Metro to ensure quality purchases that support Metro's mission. Diversity in contracting is a critical component of Metro's mission to plan for the region's future and ensure that it remains a great place to live. By actively involving minority business enterprises, woman owned business enterprises and emerging small businesses in the pool of business opportunities, we can help expand the economic opportunities in the region.
