The Purchasing Division is responsible for formal bidding, quoting, price
analysis, and contract awards for all products and services which are required
to support Town departments and agencies. This includes cooperative purchasing
activities with the Board of Education and other municipalities where
appropriate. Additionally, purchasing provides administrative support to Town
departments and agencies for the larger and more complicated contracts.
Investigation and development of new products and sources of supply are also
part of the Purchasing Division's responsibilities. The Purchasing Division
is also responsible for coordinating all activities related to the Town's
annual surplus/obsolete property sale. This includes conducting an inventory of
all items, preparing a detailed list of same, contracting with an auction
vendor, and ensuring that all goes smoothly the actual day of the sale.
