The County intends that its purchasing be conducted in accordance with state laws so that the taxpayer receives full value for each dollar of public funds spent. To that end, the County’s procedures conform to open, ethical and sound procurement policies. Qualified suppliers, therefore, are invited to compete for the County’s business, which consists of a variety of goods and services.
Prospective vendors are encouraged to submit a vendor information form or email the purchasing agent with specifications of items and services provided by their company. If a vendor feels the need to make personal contact, appointments are preferred. Sales contacts are normally scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday between the hours of 9 am — 11 am and 2 pm — 4 pm.
Environmentally Preferred Purchasing
The goal of Cabarrus County is to reduce the adverse environmental impact of our purchasing decisions by buying goods and services from manufacturers and vendors who share our commitment to the environment. By including environmental considerations in our purchasing decisions, along with our traditional concerns with price, performance and availability, we will remain fiscally responsible while promoting practices that improve public health and safety, reduce pollution and conserve natural resources.
