Public Safety Vendor Outreach Event--"Doing Business with City of Chicago"

Tuesday 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM

Public Safety Headquarters
Multipurpose Room
3510 S Michigan Ave

The Department of Procurement Services (DPS) is partnering with the Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC), the Chicago Police Department (CPD), and the Chciago Fire Department (CFD) to host a networking event for potential vendors.

Many firms, representing various industries related to technology, computer hardware/software, and public safety, have been invited to this event. The purpose of this outreach is to educate vendors not only about the services that OEMC, CPD, and CFD offer, but also the potential contracting opportunities available. As a result, vendors will be betterinformed about what goods and services they may be qualified to provide and pursue contract opportunities as either a direct or indirect contractor or subcontractor.

To RSVP for this event, please contact Rosemary McDonnell, Grants Research Specialist, @ 312.746.9369 or
