The Purchasing Department is responsible for competitive purchasing in Hamilton County, with the exception of the Engineers capital projects.

Each department requisitions items. Purchasing is responsible for placing these items with the appropriate vendors taking into account the regulations regarding competitive bidding. The Purchasing Division also handles the sales of surplus equipment.



The mission of the Hamilton County Purchasing Department is to educate and provide assistance and direction to the Administrators, Vendors, and Community through all phases of the procurement process. Our goal is to be proactively concerned about our customers' needs in a manner that adds value and builds respect for the continued growth of the current and future relationships.
