It takes a variety of goods and services to keep the City running – everything from road salt, vehicles and uniforms to printing services, office supplies, computers, communications technology and so much more.
The Purchasing Branch works with Departments as a strategic partner, facilitating value-added procurement for all goods and services. To that end, we assist with procurement project management and collaborate as business partners and advisors to our customers.
Purchasing staff are highly dedicated, knowledgeable and trained professionals. Many staff have achieved internationally recognized professional designations and certifications in procurement and inventory management.
Key objectives of the Procurement Branch:
The City of Barrie is one of the founding members of the Georgian Bay Area Public Purchasing Co-operative (GBAPPC). The GBAPPC membership comprises a broad spectrum of public agencies operating within the Georgian Bay area including municipalities, school boards, hospitals, colleges, and various other public entities that share resource efforts to procure similar goods and services through collaborative processes to recognize additional savings.
Additionally, Purchasing oversees two store locations (Operations Centre and
Surface Water Treatment Plant) to support the immediate day-today needs of the City’s Operational groups. These store areas primarily maintain inventories of commonly used items to ensure necessary materials and equipment are available to City staff when required.
