The Herkimer County Department of Budget & Purchasing is

responsible for the procurement of supplies, materials, equipment,

insurance and contracts for service.  We strive to obtain the highest

quality at the most cost efficient price, while ensuring guidelines

and policies are followed.  We are the centralized contact for all

requests and purchases made through the County.


Products and Services are obtained through formal and informal

bidding and quotation processes.  Our formal bids over $20,000

($35,000 for Public works), will be posted on our website and

published in the local newspaper.  Select bids may also be available

through the Empire State Purchasing Group at


Vendors are welcome to view the documents and register to receive

alerts for new bid opportunities.  Purchases under these dollar limits

are procured using a quotation process and awarded to the lowest quote.

All purchases for supplies and materials are made through a Purchase

Order to the vendor.


Occasionally the County will dispose of surplus equipment and supplies.

Those items may be found through Auctions International at

www.auctionsinternational.com.  Check this page for notices of new aucitons.


The Budget & Purchasing Department prides itself on fostering an open

and competitive atmosphere and we welcome any new vendors

or information on new products and services.
