The goal of the purchasing function is to encourage competition among vendors and contractors in a fair and competitive environment, provide the lowest cost advantage to the taxpayers and to ensure that goods and services are procured in the best quality and quantity at the most economical price.  Factors that determine how procurement is handled are:  the anticipated dollar amount of the goods or services, the type of goods or services and the time frame in which they are needed.  It is the policy of the County to conduct all purchasing activities in accordance with all applicable federal and state laws and County polices.  We encourage vendors to supply us with product or service information.

The County releases Requests for Proposals (RFP) and Invitations for Bids (IFB) to the public to competitively obtain pricing for goods and services.  RFP's and IFB's are due in County Administrator’s Office located at the Surry County Government Center, 45 School Street, Surry, VA 23883 by the date and time listed in each individual solicitation.  RFP's and IFB's are provided online in PDF format for viewing and/or downloading.  When required, solicitations are also advertised in the local and/or other paper or directly forwarded to prospective vendors or service providers.

The Finance Department also uses eVA, the Commonwealth of Virginia's electronic procurement portal for solicitation distribution.  To register, reactivate your registration, or update your file, please visit the eVA website.

For more information on the County’s purchasing and procurement policies, please contact the Finance Department at 757-294-5271.
