CITY OF WACO PURCHSING SERVICES
MISSION STATEMENT
Purchasing Services is a diverse, customer-oriented team, which serves as the central
control of procurement activities for materials, equipment, supplies and services,
contributing to the efficient and cost effective operation of the City of Waco.
Purchasing Services strives to procure, in an ethical manner, quality goods and services at
competitive prices while creating a favorable climate for business opportunities within the
guidelines of the law.
Purchasing is responsible for contracting, stores/warehouse and investment recovery
functions. The Department consists of three operational groups; Administration,
Contracting and Stores/Warehouse.
Administration sets policy and procedures that ensure compliance with federal, state,
and local laws.
The Contracting group contracts for goods and services, and serves as the City’s
central vendor contact for competitive bidding and contract administration.
The Stores/ Warehouse group provides a readily available supply of required items
for immediate pickup by city departments.
Purchasing manages investment recovery, which is the disposition of scrap and
surplus equipment and materials.
