The Purchasing Division works to procure goods, materials, services, and construction contracts for the City, in an ethical and professional manner. This is accomplished utilizing accepted procurement methods (including Florida State Statutes, City Code of Ordinances, etc.) in the preparation and distribution of requests for quotes, bids, letters of interest and requests for proposals.
In addition to the previously mentioned, the Purchasing Division provides support services for the Community Redevelopment Agency, including formal bid procurement. The Division also directs the disposition of vehicles, equipment, and other surplus items; administers various City contracts; and maintains the annual City inventory.
Goals & Objectives
The Purchasing Division helps to maintain the City's financial stability and solvency by its continued efforts to utilize cost saving sources of supply and procurement methods. Cost savings have been achieved by taking advantage of cooperative procurement opportunities, as well as tailoring the City's formal procurement specifications to invite optimum competition while still ensuring the quality, value and compatibility of the products and services ultimately obtained.
