Background and Mission

The County Commission in 1995 created this department. The purchasing department provides centralized coordination of County procurement activities. This department establishes formal criteria and purchasing regulations used throughout the County. The department's primary objectives include achieving consistency throughout the County, protecting the public interest, and promoting competition among vendors. This department also coordinates the disposal of County fixed assets.

It is our mission to establish formal criteria and purchasing regulations establishing equity and protection of public interest while, at the same time, assuring that regulations are not excessive, conflicting or do not impose undue costs. The development, content, and approval of all purchasing policies, regulations and procedures, as established by this department, shall be common among departments, where possible, and shall be consistent with commonly accepted purchasing principles.

All purchasing shall acquire the benefits of competition to the maximum extent practical, through the use of formal advertising or sealed bids, where applicable, with the intent to encourage submission of bids by any and all qualified suppliers. This department shall establish and maintain ethical and impartial relations with all suppliers to enhance prestige, while achieving the goals and objectives regarding purchasing activities.
