The Purchasing Division is the central authority regarding the procurement of all goods and services required for Town operations. Purchasing is responsible for ensuring that goods and services are obtained at the best value, optimum delivery, and total overall quality to meet the requirements of the requisitioning departments. This is accomplished by obtaining quotes, competitive bids and proposals, establishing interlocal agreements, and enforcing procedures and controls.
Purchasing must ensure that these responsibilities are met in compliance with Texas Local Government Code and the Texas Government Code, in addition to other relevant federal, state, and local statutes and codes, and the Town of Little Elm Home Rule Charter.
The Town Council will make final award on any expenditure exceeding the dollar amount governed by the State Competitive Bid Law whether the item is subject to bid or not.
