INTRODUCTION

This summary is designed to help you become familiar with our policies and procedures for procurement, which in turn will aid in selling your products/services to the County.

 

PURCHASING and CONTRACTS  

County purchasing procedures are governed by California Public Contract Code and County Ordinance, Chapter 2.50.  Purchasing is a function of the Administrative Services Department of Yuba County. The Purchasing Agent of Yuba County is charged with the responsibility of providing purchasing oversight for all departments and administers contracts required by law to be made on competitive bid.  County departments have delegated authority given by the Purchasing Agent to  make purchases of certain materials and equipment under $15,000.  Public Works Contracts are  administered by the Director of Public Works.  Every purchase is made in the County’s best  interest while providing vendors a fair and equal opportunity to do business with the County.  The  County will consider:

  • The price
  • The quality of the product
  • The suitability of the product for the intended use
  • The ability, experience, efficiency, integrity, and financial responsibility of the bidder
  • Qualifications for technical or expert services
