Purchasing & procuring goods and services for ALL Town departments!
Our primary goal in the Finance Department is to pay for only the highest quality goods and services at the lowest possible cost in accordance with the Town’s Purchasing Policy and Procedures. All Town employees are responsible for exercising good stewardship in the use of public resources and tax dollars.
Become a New Vendor!
We’d like to do business with you! Becoming a new vendor with the Town of Clayton generally requires registration with the Purchasing Officer and completion of the new vendor application. All purchasing policies and procedures as mentioned above apply. Click here to check out current bidding opportunities.
The Town utilizes competitive bidding practices where required by North Carolina General Statutes and Town Policy, but a 1997 NC law also enables the Town to “piggyback” on state contracts or purchase through a group or cooperative purchasing agreement. Many times, the Town can realize savings this way. Read more on piggybacking.
The Town sells surplus equipment and other items through an electronic auction portal. Go here for a current list of items: GovDeals.com
Items that require specialized delivery need to be coordinated with the Purchasing Officer. View our Delivery Guidelines and Schedules.
