The Purchasing Department of Brazoria County was established October of 1999, based on Commissioner’s Court decision to have a centralized Purchasing Department. Since that time, the Purchasing Department has established policies and procedures for the procurement of goods and services for the County in accordance with procurement laws of the State of Texas.
The Purchasing Department is comprised of three sections, Buying, Contracts and Asset Management. These three sections work together with County departments to ensure the most economical, proper, and responsive purchase of all materials and equipment used by the County.
The Purchasing Department also provides responsible bidders a fair and equal opportunity to compete for County business. This is accomplished by complying with statutory requirements and the County’s purchasing policies and procedures.
In addition, the Purchasing Department works in concert with the County Auditor as a part of a system of checks and balances to ensure the proper expenditure of taxpayer dollars.
