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.
The Board of Supervisors delegates the authority to procure all goods and services to the County Purchasing Agent. This authority is then delegated to Deputy Purchasing Agents located at each agency and department. 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.
The County Procurement Office has been accredited as a Quality Public Procurement Department (QPPD) by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP). Only 163 out of over 3,000 of the Country’s governmental agencies hold this prestigious accreditation and we are honored to be recognized for our continual pursuit of excellence.
