How are purchases made for smaller transactions (less than $10,000)

For purchases up to $1,500, Departments within the County may make purchases directly using a "P-Card", which is a VISA credit card.

For purchases over $1,500, a Purchase Order must be issued.  Only one quote is required when the purchase amount is less than $5,000.  If the purchase amount is between $5,000 and $10,000, then three quotes are obtained by the County (may be requested by phone, fax, or email).  The Central Purchasing Office issues Purchase Orders.
