Purchasing Services provides a corporate wide, strategic purchasing perspective that encompasses making best value decisions related to the purchasing of goods and services. Our main objective is to seek and provide the best value for the taxpayers’ dollar in the most cost effective way through coordinated teamwork and a commitment to actively participate in the procurement process.

A centralized operation, we provide the following services all client divisions with the Town of Fort Erie:

  • Review and approval of purchase requisitions for tangible items and services;
  • Conduct bid solicitations in accordance with the Town of Fort Erie Purchasing Policy;
  • Ensure procedural compliance and adherence of the Town’s Purchasing Policy;
  • Reallocate usable surplus assets within the Town or dispose of it by auction or suitable means;
