What does the Purchasing department do?

The Washington County Purchasing department is responsible for facilitating the bid process for county departments and posting bid information for the public. We receive bid submissions from vendors and publicly open the sealed bids for complete transparency.

We are also responsible for tracking and disposing of county inventory. Disposal may include surplus auctioning or recycling.

Current Bids, RFPs, and RFQs

If county offices are closed for any reason (i.e. inclement weather, fire, or other natural disasters), all bid openings will be postponed until the following operational work day. Bids will be opened at the same time stated in the solicitation.

If you would like to be notified of new bid requests, please email Purchasing with your contact information.
