The Town has a decentralized purchasing system, so the purchasing process takes place at the departmental level. Invoices are approved by the individual departments and forwarded to the Finance Department for payment.
Chapter 176 of the Texas Local government Code requires a person or business, and their agents, who contract with the Town or seek to contract with the Town for the sale or purchase of goods, services, or property to file a conflicts of disclosure questionnaire.
Prospective vendors should complete a Vendor Registration Form (PDF) and return the requested materials to the Town of Highland Park's Finance Department at 4700 Drexel Drive, Highland Park, Texas 75205. Vendor information is distributed to the appropriate departments based upon the information on the form.
All vendors must return a completed Form W-9 (PDF) and a completed Conflict of Interest Questionnaire (PDF) to the Town before payments shall be processed for payment. These forms may be faxed to the Finance Department at 214-559-9348 or mailed to:
