Welcome to the Procurement Office
The Procurement Office is a division of the County Executive Office (CEO) that provides corporate level procurement support to the County. The County Purchasing Agent, as head of the Procurement Office is responsible for implementing and enforcing Board of Supervisors and CEO policies pertaining to County procurement. The Procurement Office is charged with ensuring that the County's process is fair, competitive, efficient and conducted under strict ethical guidelines.

Under direction of the CEO, the Procurement Office ensures that proper safeguards are in place for maintaining a procurement system of quality and integrity by providing procurement support, training and oversight countywide.
