The mission of the Purchasing Office is to provide our internal customers, the using departments, with quality products and services when needed, at reasonable costs. In order to accomplish our mission, we will obtain the best value (quality-price relationship) consistent with approved budgets.
Commitment to Vendors & Contractors
We believe in competition; therefore, the Purchasing Office is committed to giving all vendors and contractors an equal chance to do business with the City of The Colony. The Purchasing Agent will treat vendors fairly and with respect. If you feel you haven't been treated properly, please let us know.
Vendors will be seen between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is strongly suggested that you make an appointment or call before you come to the purchasing office. The City doesn't want you to waste your time if there is not going to be anyone available to see you.
The Purchasing Office is subject to the City's Charter, State Statutes, City Ordinances, and Management's Directives in carrying out the City's Purchasing Policies and Procedures. The City feels that the rules result in open and fair competition for our vendors and contractors and the best value for our taxpayers.
The City of The Colony is subject to the State Prompt Payment Act, which requires payment within thirty days of the receipt of both a valid invoice and the acceptance of goods and services.
