The purchasing office maintains all files relating to Fixed Asset Management. Fixed Assets are any single items with a cost over $2,000 or tangible personal property with an expected life of over 1 year. Items are tagged with a Pulaski County numerical sticker and logged in a software system. The office also regulates and monitors all transfers of fixed assets to other departments or to storage to be sold at auction.
The purchasing office maintains a copy of all contracts filed with the County Clerk’s Office. These contracts may be for services provided to Pulaski County or for services that Pulaski County is providing through a grant. The office is then responsible for reviewing all contracts for accuracy and validity in accordance with state laws and county policies prior to routing the contract to Administrative Services, the County Attorney, and the County Judge for acceptance and authorization. The office will also maintain the termination or expiration date of contracts to notify the department for possible continuation, renewal or cancellation.
Purchase Requisition & Purchase Order Authorization The purchasing office accepts purchase requisitions from departments for items that are not otherwise included in contracts; reviews request for compliance; and issues Purchase Orders if applicable.
