NIGP AccreditationThe Purchasing Division of the town is organized into two functions under the general direction of the Department of Financial Services: purchasing and inventory control.

The goal of the department is to purchase all materials, services, equipment and supplies in the proper quantity, at the proper time, at the best price, through professional and ethical dealing. The Purchasing Division conducts online auctions through www.publicsurplus.com and www.govdeals.com. For additional information, please contact Purchasing administration

The Purchasing Division became the 96th entity to receive the Outstanding Agency Accreditation Achievement Award from the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing. The accreditation demonstrates excellence in procurement through the accomplishment of rigorous standards and best practices. The accreditation process required substantial documentation and a thorough demonstration of best practices. The award brings credibility and recognition to the Town and is a continuing process as one must be reaccredited every three years.
