Be sure to check our Purchasing Tips below.
Our staff consists of experienced professionals trained to assist departmental personnel in areas such as vendor selection, product availability, current prices, and purchasing rules and regulations.
Follow these guidelines when checking for product availability.
1.) Is the item offered through Central Stores?
2.) No? Is the item on a Statewide Contract (opens new window)?
3.) After you have checked these sources, you are free to choose any vendor capable of supplying the product. Please be advised that the Governor issued an Executive Order to use minority vendors whenever possible. A member of a minority is defined as an individual who is a member of a race which comprises less than 50 percent of the total population of the State of Georgia. For more minority information, contact the State of Georgia Office of Small and Minority Businesses.
