Thank you for visiting the Division of Purchases' website. We have tried to include information here that both our agency customers and our suppliers will find helpful. Recent initiatives that may be of interest include the following:

In cooperation with the Department of Environmental Protection, the Division of Purchases has established an Environmentally Preferable Procurement (EPP) Policy and Program.
Our Code of Conduct applies to suppliers of Apparel, Footwear and Textiles, and requires all bidders seeking contracts to provide a signed affidavit stating that they, and to the best of their knowledge their suppliers at the point of assembly, comply with the workplace laws of the site of assembly and with treaty obligations that are shared by the United States and the country in which the goods are assembled.
Awarded the contract through a competitive Request for Proposals, US Bank is our P-card vendor. The P-card is used predominantly for purchases under the $5,000.00 open market limit, eliminating paper purchase orders and separate billing/payment mechanisms and providing an electronic record of transactions.
