Capital Contracts Division

The Capital Contracts Division (CCD) provides contract services for two departments: the Public Works Department (OPW) and the Department of Transportation (OakDOT). Our contracts are only for capital improvement projects, which are projects that improve the infrastructure of City property. These projects are approved by the City Council during the two year budget cycle.
