This directory identifies Westchester County Bureau of Purchase buyers and the specific commodities or related services for which they are responsible.

The Westchester County charter mandates that purchasing agents are to control the purchase, sale, rental, repair and distribution of all supplies, materials and equipment required by the county. This includes county departments, institutions, offices and agencies. Before making any purchase, it is mandatory to invite competitive bidding as per the rules and regulations that have been enacted by the county board.

All purchase or service contracts are made in accordance with the applicable laws governing our purchasing activities. Awards are made to the lowest responsive and responsible bidders who meet the prescribed specifications. We shall strive constantly for understanding, courtesy and fair play in all our contracts with our suppliers and their representatives.

We wholeheartedly subscribe to the principles and standards of purchasing practice as advocated by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing.

Quotes and bids are posted with The Empire State Purchasing Group. If you have any questions, you may contact:
