The County Purchasing Agent must make all purchases that are paid for from county funds for the various institutions, departments, officers, and employees of the county. The purchasing Agent is the shopper for all county purchases and all county purchasing must be conducted through this agent. The Purchasing Agent prepares and solicits bids for all purchases when bidding is required, notifies successful vendors of bid acceptance, solicits telephone quotes of prices when a bid is not required, and places all orders with the vendors.
