Where can I find full copies of city government contracts? I prefer file types that allow for searching. The city of Chicago provided access at one point but I can no longer find the actual files.

    As Albert commented, what kind of contracts? And what period, what cities (size)? Please edit, it looks like your question needs a US tag too. And note that file types that allow for searching is broad - even Word documents are (batch) searchable. – Jan Doggen Jun 22 '17 at 10:14
  • Make FOIA requests. Cities don't publish contracts on their own. – Anton Tarasenko Aug 30 '17 at 9:33

Presuming that it's just US cities that you are interested in, the US City Local Open Data Census records those that are open under its procurement contracts category.

So if you're looking for Chigaco, you will find the link to the open dataset in question under the 'location' column of the table

As mentioned above, the contracts are listed in this dataset and when available, there is a link to the PDF.
