Purchasing & Contract Services - SPPS Staff Site

Welcome to the staff only section of the SPPS Purchasing & Contract Services Department's website. 

The Purchasing & Contract Services Department manages all SPPS contracts and works with staff on large or significant purchases. The department strives to purchase quality supplies necessary to support the SPPS mission, while getting the best value on SPPS purchases and expenses.  Contracts and purchases are managed according to city, state, and federal laws and regulations. The department actively seeks to contract with small businesses, women-owned businesses, and minority-owned businesses in an effort to eliminate systemic disparities.

The SPPS Purchasing & Contract Services Department recognizes purchasing as a profession and subscribes to the standards and expectations of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing Code of Ethics. The department has also adopted the Global Sullivan Principles of corporate social responsibility, and encourages suppliers to adopt and follow these principles.
