About Us

The Purchasing Division is a division within the Department of General Services which provides support services to all county agencies. The Department of General Services consists of Purchasing, Capital Projects, Facilities, Management Information Systems, Communications, and Fleet Management..

The Rockland County Purchasing Division adheres to the Guiding Principles of Public Procurement.

The principles are intended to guide the professional practice of public procurement, and to inform procurement stakeholders (elected officials, managers, citizens, etc.) about the principles they can expect to be upheld by public procurement professionals. Of course, no statement of principles can anticipate all situations that arise in the practice of public procurement. However, principles are not just guidelines for action when something goes wrong or when a dilemma is found. Rather, principles should proactively guide the behaviors of professionals in everyday practice.

These principles are intended to set the standard of practice for all public sector procurement professionals. These principles, however, are not intended to replace standards supported by other disciplines in which procurement professionals participate.

Guiding Principles of Public Procurement:

  • Accountability
  • Professionalism
  • Transparency
  • Service
  • Impartiality
  • Ethics
