Brief Description of Services
Purchasing Office is responsible for procurement of goods and services and operation of Central Stockroom.
The mission of the St. Lawrence County Purchasing Department is to reduce the cost of County Government, and to foster public confidence in County Government. This is accomplished through the administration of a purchasing process that fosters competition, impartiality and openness of the process.
The term Purchasing is perceived by many as another word for "buying". And, while this is true, Public Purchasing is much more. It is a comprehensive program that includes procurement of equipment and supplies, inventory management, disposition of surplus property, and contracting for various services needed in the operation of County Government. The responsibilities necessary to conduct a successful Central Purchasing Program call for initiative, sound decision making, and a proactive approach to finding solutions to problems.
