Purchasing Department

​The Purchasing Department is the central procurement authority for the District, responsible for purchases, service contracts, receiving, fixed assets, surplus and mail services. It is our goal to furnish the best possible service and support to all district sites, colleges and offices while obtaining the maximum value of each dollar expended.  In addition, we place a high value on friendly and professional relationships with our suppliers and potential suppliers.
