About Us

The Purchasing Department procures materials, supplies, equipment, and services for all County departments.

One of our primary goals is to maintain maximum dollar savings while ensuring required levels of quality. The Purchasing Department strives to treat vendors and contractors equitably and fairly by promoting competitive marketing through solicitation of quotations, bids, and proposals. Purchasing strives to bring the greatest value to Cobb County with integrity and honesty. This division provides assistance to the County Manager and the Board of Commissioners in securing procurements and future planning for Cobb County.
