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.
