Purchasing & Bids

Purple Modern Professional Web Designer LinkedIn Banner

Welcome to the Citrus County Purchasing Department's web site. The mission of the Purchasing Department is to procure goods and services in accordance with the County’s Purchasing Administrative Regulations, in a fair, transparent, and ethical manner. The Department ensures that County funds are expended in a fiscally responsible manner and that all commodities and services are procured at the lowest possible cost in accordance with applicable federal, state, and local regulations.

The Purchasing Department procures all non-construction related goods and services, as well as all good and services not exempt from the Purchasing Code that are valued at $5,000 or greater. County Departments have the authority to procure goods and services valued less than $5,000 through a decentralized purchasing process. The procurement of goods and services is accomplished through various methods including, but not limited to, Invitations for Bid (ITB), Requests for Proposal (RFP), and Requests for Quotation (RFQ).
