The Division of Procurement in the Department of Administration is responsible for providing the necessary equipment, services and supplies at the lowest possible cost consistent with the quality needed to meet the requirements of all offices and departments within St. Louis County Government.
Our goal is maximum value for each dollar expended, and to be accountable in providing innovative and high quality services in an economical, fair, professional, courteous manner, and to enhance and protect the safety of the County.
It is the policy of the Division of Procurement that all agents must be free of any and all obligations to actual or potential suppliers and contractors, and must remain beyond challenge or reproach in all business transactions. As public servants with fiduciary responsibilities for expenditure or public funds, the St. Louis County Division of Procurement Agents are expected to avoid potential conflicts of interest and situations that might give the appearance of a conflict of interest.
They must refrain from soliciting gifts, gratuities, favors, or any services or items of value from contractors or suppliers or potential contractors or suppliers. Any violation of this policy is a conflict of interest and the individual in violation is subject to penalties established by the County and applicable federal, state or local laws, statutes, or regulations.
