Westchester County Government

Bureau of Purchase and Supplies

image of moneyThe Bureau of Purchase and Supplies is responsible for purchasing materials, equipment and supplies for all Westchester County departments.

We strive to obtain the best overall value for taxpayers. To that end, the county initiated a Shared Services program. The goal is to share services and create cooperative contracts. Already, local governments, school districts and fire districts can benefit from our purchasing power, because they are allowed access to our purchasing contracts.

As we create new opportunities for savings, we plan on sharing them with you.

Whether you're a vendor, a county department, or a local government within Westchester County, we hope you'll find this information helpful. Please contact us with your questions, comments, and suggestions.
