What does the Purchasing Department do?
HACC's Purchasing Department works with user departments to:
- Prepare delivery schedules.
Write quality and quantity specifications for items and services. These items and services will be purchased.
The Purchasing Department is responsible for:
- Providing user departments with current information. Information includes new products and services, alternative materials and costs.
- Encouraging competition among vendors. We achieve this through negotiation, competitive bidding and contract buying.
- Ensuring purchase orders and contracts contain all necessary conditions. These conditions can include guarantees, warranties, governmental regulations, shipping instructions, credit terms and discounts.
- Developing records to determine supplies, services and equipment requirements.
- Maintaining adequate records and files of requisitions, purchase orders, vendors, catalogs, product information and prices.
