Hills repeats national honor

For the ninth year in a row, the National Purchasing Institute has awarded Rochester Hills its Achievement of Excellence in Procurement. The award is designed to measure innovation, professionalism, productivity, e-procurement and leadership in procurement. The city is one of only four government agencies in Michigan and 54 cities in the United States to receive the award.

“Having received this award for the ninth consecutive year demonstrates that our team has effectively established best practices, including an online government purchasing system that not only streamlines the process, but allows for transparency and support of our vendors,” says Mayor Bryan Barnett.

The city distributes bid documents through the Michigan Inter-governmental Trade Network, which maximizes the purchasing power and value of public funds through procurement.

“We maintain a purchasing team of qualified and certified professionals whose number-one priority is to maximize public dollars with a competitive and ethical procurement process,” says Jean Farris, the city’s Supervisor of Procurement.
