Purchasing Agent for Anderson
office of the Anderson County Purchasing Agent is governed by the County
Purchasing Law of 1957, Tennessee Code Annotated 5-14-101. The Purchasing
Department is the central buying agency for all Anderson County Government
Departments and the Anderson County School System. Purchasing is
responsible for the acquisitions of all materials and services, as well as
receiving and disposing of surplus property. Departments needing
fixed assets, materials, supplies, or labor forward requisitions to the
Purchasing Department, who then obtains price quotes or issues formal bid
solicitations in order to find the best value for the lowest price possible.
Every purchase is made in Anderson
interest while providing all vendors with a fair, open and equal
opportunity to do business.
In order to stay informed of the latest
procurement techniques and product information, the Purchasing Department
maintains an active membership in the National
Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP), the Tennessee Association of Public Purchasing
(TAPP) and the East Tennessee
Purchasing Association (ETPA).
