Executive Management includes management of the County’s procurement practices, planning for future purchasing challenges, maintaining internal quality assurance, recommending policy and managing the budget for the Division. The Executive management line of business consists of the Administration business unit.
Administrative Services provide administrative, fiscal and human resource guidance, information technology development, training, audit of delegated purchases, and education and outreach programs to facilitate efficient and effective achievement of Operations and Executive Management. The Administrative Services line of business is executed through the Special Projects, Information Technology and Administrative Support business units.
Operations encompass the mandated core business of the Division – procurement and disposition of surplus property.
