Purchasing is responsible for developing and implementing all policies and procedures related to purchases for the City of North Port.
To ensure the financial integrity of the City, purchases of various goods and services are reviewed and approved by Purchasing.
Purchasing's mission is to help all City departments procure the goods and services necessary to preserve and promote the public welfare. We hope this website is a helpful guide for all of our customers, both inside and outside City government.
In fulfilling our mission, we are dedicated to providing responsive, timely and courteous service for City departments and the community by:
- Complying with all State laws, local ordinances and administrative procedures that govern the City's purchasing process;
