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.
