Purchasing Policies


In an average year, the Purchasing Department issues over 5,000 purchase orders with a value of approximately $20,000,000. Due to the substantial amount of money involved, the Purchasing Department is guided in its purchasing procedures by a number of basic policies. These policies are:

  • To conduct all purchasing in accordance with the laws of the State of Georgia and the City of Warner Robins.
  • To obtain the quantity and necessary quality of goods and services at the least cost, with the best quality available, and at the time and place which they are needed.
  • To stimulate competitive bidding in order to obtain such goods and services of the best quality and the least cost.
  • To provide all viable vendors with an opportunity to offer their goods or services to the City of Warner Robins.
  • To treat all vendors fairly.
