The Purchasing Department is charged with the procurement of all supplies, materials, equipment and contractual services needed and used by City Departments, except the Consolidated School District. It is charged to endeavor full and open competition on all City purchases. The Purchasing Department sells all surplus supplies and rolling stock which have become unsuitable for City use.
The procurement of supplies and equipment is generally accomplished by using the sealed bid process and/or by vendor price quote solicitations. The department also participates in joint purchases with the State of Connecticut and other area municipalities in order to obtain quantity discounts.
The Purchasing Department issues all purchase orders for the various items as required.
