Purchasing is responsible for overseeing a decentralized purchasing system that reviews and processes purchase orders for commodities and services that exceed $1,000. The Purchasing Office is also responsible for coordinating and developing formal bids and requests for proposals to ensure competitive bidding and to ensure compliance with the City’s Purchasing Policy and accepted industry standards. In addition, Purchasing also is responsible for maintaining the City’s fixed asset inventory and coordinates disposal of surplus equipment.
