The DFW International Airport (DFW Airport) Procurement and Materials Management (PMM) Department invites the supplier community to learn more about how to do business with the DFW Airport and what business opportunities are currently available. We offer many collaborative features to our suppliers through the DFW Airport Oracle iSupplier Portal Application (iSupplier). Quick and easy registration is needed in order to begin.
The goals of the DFW Airport PMM Department include:
- Purchase quality goods and services;
- Obtain the best possible prices for goods and services;
- Delivery of goods and services when and where needed;
- Assure a continuing supply of needed goods and services;
- Give suppliers a fair opportunity to compete for the DFW Airport’s business.
THE PROCUREMENT PROCESS
Suppliers are encouraged to participate in the DFW Airport procurement process by responding to the following methods of solicitation:
- Request for Quote (Informal)
- Request for Competitive Sealed Bid
- Request for Competitive Sealed Proposal
Also, contract opportunities directly with DFW Airport as well as with firms who are awarded contracts with DFW Airport opportunities exist for the Architectural, Engineering & Construction business community through DFW’s Airport Development and Engineering Department.
The DFW Airport follows State of Texas procurement laws as they pertain to municipalities (primarily Local Government Code 252). Unless exempted under law, requirements for any goods or general services with an estimated cost in excess of $50,000 will be published in newspapers in both the cities of Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas. These advertisements will be published once a week for two consecutive weeks, typically on Sundays, in the "classified legal notice" sections of said newspapers. In addition, a list of procurement opportunities will be posted on DFW Airport’s website; to view click on Solicitation Schedules.
The Board strongly encourages MWBE (minority/women-owned business enterprise) firms to participate in solicitations and encourages joint venture bids that include MWBE firms.
Important Note: A Supplier’s participation in iSupplier does not guarantee that they will be notified of all business opportunities for which they are qualified nor is a guarantee that the Supplier will be awarded a purchase order or contract. Suppliers should check the DFW Airport website and/or obtain solicitation information from the local newspapers.
