• The Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of all supplies, services, and equipment for Washington County.
  • It is the department's duty to obtain the best possible pricing from qualified vendors. For a county with a population of more than 120,000, this is a heavy responsibility that Willie Shrewsbury, purchasing manager since 2001, and his staff take seriously.
  • The Purchasing Staff attempts to obtain at least three quotations for all purchases under $10,000 and performs a formal sealed bid procedure for most purchases over $10,000.
  • The competitive bid process ensures that the taxpayer and the requesting department receive the best value for their money.
  • The Purchasing Department also contracts for the lease or rental of equipment, and conducts all sales of county-owned property which has become surplus, obsolete or unusable.
