Doing Business with Bexar County


Bexar County is committed to working with small, minority-owned, women-owned, and veteran-owned businesses as well as disadvantaged business enterprises and historically underutilized businesses. Our goal is to work together with business owners, regional partners, state & federal agencies, and other resources to deliver the best environment for entrepreneurs and small businesses. 

This area contains links to multiple Bexar County entities. The Bexar County Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of goods and services for Bexar County Departments and Offices. The Bexar County Public Works Department focuses on capital improvements and construction, as well as professional services. The Contract & Diversity Management System (CDMS) is a directory of all certified SMWBE / DBE / HUB businesses in the Bexar County area. 

Other links here include the Bexar County District Attorney’s office for reporting hot checks and white-collar fraud, the Bexar County Economic Development Department, and information on previously awarded bids and contracts. Each section is broken down to the areas of interest to businesses, including construction, professional services, and goods & commodities.
