The Purchasing Department for the City of Jackson assists departments throughout the City in making the necessary purchases required to accomplish their jobs. We coordinate the purchase of items from office supplies to heavy equipment, bridge repair and the construction of buildings. Items under $6999.00 may be purchased without taking quotes. Items $7000 – $24,999 must have quotes and a purchase order prior to making the purchase. Items over $25,000 must be bid out or proposals taken.
Each year, we design the new city stickers, keep the purchasing procedures current and follow-up with each department on the receipt of their purchases.
We meet with departments to review purchasing procedures, emphasize the importance of following the rules, make the best purchase for the money and stay within budget.
