Town Director of Purchasing

Description:
Any town, by resolution, may establish the office of director of purchasing. Centralizing the purchasing function in the office of director of purchasing can promote sound purchasing practices by concentrating knowledge of purchasing laws, practices and market conditions in one official. In addition, creation of this position segregates the purchasing function from other components of the purchasing process, such as the receiving and audit functions, thereby improving internal control (Town Law, Sections 20  (3) (e), and 41-b).
