The Purchasing Department is responsible for making all purchases for Lafayette County, whether purchasing an item or a service. The department receives Purchasing Requisitions from the individual departments and converts them to Purchase Orders. The department then follows state purchasing guidelines and determines the method of the purchase (state contract, quotes, sealed bids, no bids, etc.). Quotes are required if the purchase is over $5,000 but less than $50,000. Bids are required if the purchase is over $50,000.

Lafayette County’s general bids run from July 1 through June 30 of every year. If you would like a copy of our general bid list, please call us or email us and we will be happy to provide you with a copy.
