The mission of the Office of Procurement is to facilitate the use of public funds in partnership with County departments to effectively procure goods and services in an inclusive, transparent, and equitable manner, that best serves County residents, businesses, and the public interest. Transparency is a critical core value as it encourages the public’s good will and strengthened trust in the County’s procurement process. In keeping with that value, the Vendor Innovation Portal (VIP) was created as a tool for businesses to connect with the County and introduce their ideas to improve and enhance operations.
