The mission of the Purchasing Department is to be responsible for administering all purchasing policies and procedures in obtaining materials and services of the right quality, in the right quantity, at the right price, from the right source, and at the right time for the needs of all departments under the Board of County Commissioners.
The Board of County Commissioners created the Central Purchasing Department in November, 1976. Our mission is to represent the County and be responsible for administering all purchasing policies and procedures in purchasing goods and services. Our goal is to obtain the greatest value from each tax dollar spent by departments under the Board of County Commissioners. We are also responsible for maintaining records and inventory of tangible personal property for all departments under the Board and all Constitutional officers except the Sheriff, as defined in Chapter 274, Florida Statutes.
The Purchasing Department is involved in support of almost all major projects by other departments within the County system. Whether we are "spec-ing" out equipment, working on engineering projects, dealing with consultants, obtaining pricing, coordinating delivery of goods or helping with disaster recovery, we are always working toward our department's motto.
