Business Opportunities

The mission of Purchasing is to meet the needs of our internal and external customers by providing procurement support and advice to divisions; providing accurate information to divisions, citizens and vendors; and procuring goods and services that are of the best value so all divisions may provide the most valuable and economical services.

May I Visit?

Sales representatives are a valuable source of information in obtaining bids, specifications, state-of-the-art advancements or product improvements. They also assist in resolving problems in delivery and billing and payment difficulties. We value your visits. However, we recommend you call for appointments in order to productively utilize our time and yours.
