  The primary purpose of the Purchasing Department is to procure all goods and services on the best terms and at the lowest overall cost consistent with an appropriate level of quality.The Commonwealth of MA refers to this process of procurement as 'Best Buy' Procurement practices. Acquisition will be without favoritism and on a competitive basis, whenever practical, to obtain maximum value for each dollar expended. All interested suppliers will receive fair and impartial consideration.
