From business cards and office supplies to construction, engineering and architectural services — it all starts with an approved purchase order.
Procurement First. Purchase Second.
Whether you need a box of paperclips, printer paper or a new library, Procurement Services ensures that all purchases are pre-approved and in compliance with county policies and regulations.
Securing an approved purchase order before you buy saves you time and trouble later.
