The function of the Purchasing Department is to assist all Town Departments in purchasing necessary items and services of the best quality at the lowest price, within the parameters of the Town ordinances and the State purchasing laws. We do this by writing specifications, soliciting bids and/or quotes from qualified vendors, and using the available state contracts. All purchases over $500 whether small or large must be approved by the Chief Procurement Officer.
The Purchasing Department maintains a vendor list, catalog reference file and an inventory of office supplies for the convenience of all departments. It is the responsibility of the Purchasing Department to review contracts to cover these purchases, again meeting all local and state laws.
