Bidding Procedures

The City of Burleson advertises all Invitations to Bid and Request for Proposals in the Fort-Worth Star Telegram. The total value of each sealed advertised bid is estimated at $50,000 or more.

The City of Burleson currently uses Bonfire for bid distribution. Bids may be obtained through the City of Burleson Purchasing internet site at the Vendor Registration link.


In order to do business with the City of Burleson, you must become a registered vendor. Bonfire is a web-based service that allows vendors to register to do business with the City through an easy to use no cost web based form. 

Profile Management

Once vendors are registered, they can manage their own profiles and update commodity codes, insurance information, or any other critical profile data. When bids are posted, vendors matching that commodity code profile are automatically notified of the bid so they can download it from the City’s website.
