Purchasing is responsible for guiding the County's purchasing methods and practices. County purchasing is decentralized, so most pricing of goods and services is coordinated on the departmental level. Purchasing reviews and approves purchases beginning at the purchase order threshold ensuring that policies and procedures are followed.

If you need more information about the County's purchasing process, please contact the Purchasing and Contracts Manager at 704-866-3112. Purchasing does not maintain a vendor list but Purchasing will share your company information with applicable departments if you email detailed information to the Purchasing and Contracts Manager (refer to Contact Us for email).
