Purchasing is responsible for directing and coordinating the procurement of goods and services required by BPU with the objective that such goods and services will be available at the proper time, in the proper place, in quantity, quality and price consistent with the needs of the BPU. Tasks include improving purchasing policies, administering procurement contracts, providing support and information to users on type or availability and costs (considering benefits, effectiveness and efficiency) of equipment, supplies and services.
The BPU provides preference to local vendors and suppliers in procurement transactions whenever practical and in the best interest of the BPU. Please review our Local Preference Policy to see if your company qualifies for local vendor preference.
It is the policy of the BPU that minority and women business enterprises can be afforded the maximum opportunity to participate in the performance of BPU contracts, subcontracts and agreements. To assure greater participation and development of minority and women business enterprises in BPU projects, including but not limited to, participation as contractors, subcontractors, vendors and suppliers, BPU shall make a bona fide effort to identify and recruit such enterprises, contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and vendors.
We are continuously looking for new ideas; better material and cost-reduction recommendations and we share in your satisfaction when your product or service provides benefit to BPU. The technical advice and service you provide is considered a factor in measuring the total value of the supplier relationship.
We appreciate the time and effort you are taking to acquaint us with your products, services and capabilities that might prove helpful to our operation.
