The Purchasing and Contracting Department manages the procurement of goods and services for the River Authority and is responsible for coordinating the solicitation and contracting of various goods and services needed to implement our mission and serve our constituents.
The following principals have been established in an effort to ensure the effectiveness and efficiency of our processes:
- Demonstrate responsible stewardship of funds for the taxpayers by obtaining best value, mitigating risk to the organization, and being professional in performing duties.
- Utilize best practices in procurement while complying with internal and external statutes, policies, and procedures.
- Create a fair environment for vendors to foster business relationships and competition for goods and services.
