Mission

The mission of the PCM team is to facilitate the procurement of quality goods and services through a unified system that ensures integrity, fairness, and cost control to the citizens of Nassau County by maximizing competition, transparency, and the inclusion of industry best practices.

We are dedicated to effectively administering the complete procurement and contract cycles of all goods and services on behalf of our clients (county departments and agencies who are serving our citizens' needs) from the initial needs determination and purchasing process, through evaluation, negotiations, contract implementation and management, and conclusion.


Our Major Objectives are:

  • To comply with federal, state, and county procurement laws which govern expenditures of public funds,
  • To provide timely responsive support to departments,
  • To generate broad participation and competition among potential suppliers and contractors,
  • To ensure good quality products and services at competitive prices,
  • To ensure equal opportunity to all qualified vendors and contractors wishing to compete for County business,
  • To monitor vendor performance to ensure accountability,
  • To provide procurement policy, standards, and best practice guidance and training to departments and their employees,
  • To keep abreast of current developments in the fields of sourcing, purchasing, contracts administration, supply chain management, and overall economic and market conditions, and
  • To formulate and recommend policies and procedures to the Board.


Doing business with Nassau County

Competition is the key to doing business with Nassau County.  Most awards are made on the basis of the lowest bid and most responsible, reliable vendor who will provide the best value to the citizens of Nassau County.

All vendors must be competitive and demonstrate that they will provide the best quality at the best value.  Please read all solicitation documents carefully!  The County strives to be as explicit and provide as much information about a solicitation that it possibly can to best enable respondents to provide the most thorough response possible.  If something is unclear or other complications arise, vendors should contact Nassau County Procurement as soon as possible.  Do not wait until the bid due date or opening!

Most procurement actions with a dollar value over $5,000 but less than $50,000 will be bid by Procurement informally.  Those procurements over $50,000 require formal solicitations and must be submitted as a sealed response.  All vendors responding to formal solicitations will be advised in writing if they receive an award for a solicitation to which they have responded.

All solicitation documents are public record and will be available for inspection immediately after the solicitation process has concluded and an award issued.

Our team is committed to being on the cutting edge of industry standards and best practices. Our professionals are actively involved in a variety of industry and professional organizations, and all of them are actively seeking out both thought leaders and new ideas to ensure that Nassau County is consistently able to deliver the best service possible to drive efficiency and improve outcomes for our citizens and those who serve them.
