Placer County employs centralized procurement to provide best value purchasing through fair and open competition, conducted by trained and dedicated purchasing professionals. The Procurement Services Division of the Department of Administrative Services purchases supplies, equipment and services for all County departments.
The Board of Supervisors sets forth how purchasing activities are to be conducted in Placer County and has adopted the Placer County Procurement Policy (PDF). The policies contained in this document apply to all County departments, including department heads and elected officials.
Please contact Procurement Services staff at 530-886-2122 if you have any questions regarding these policies and how they apply to Placer County's general purchasing activities.
