By Amanda Amos, Procurement Coordinator
The Commonwealth of Virginia has proclaimed the month of March as Governmental Purchasing Month. In 1958, the Virginia Association of Governmental Purchasing (VAGP) was established and quickly became the largest chapter of the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP). The group is comprised of professional public purchasing members employed by nearly 350 public entities in the Commonwealth of Virginia, including cities, counties, towns, state agencies, colleges, universities, public schools, hospitals, political subdivisions, authorities, and community service boards. At Orange County, staff work diligently seeking best purchasing practices that benefit the County as a whole. We encourage all vendors to sign up on the County ’ s bidders list to stay informed of opportunities with the County. Vendors can sign up or update their information on the Bidder ’ s List at http://orangecountyva.gov/FormCenter/Finance - 10/Bidder - Application - 55. Bidder ’ s List additions and updates are automatically sent to the Procurement Coordinator. Orange County procurement information can be found at http://orangecountyva.gov/243/Procurement.
