Purchasing

Under the direction of the Finance Director, the Purchasing Department is the central authority regarding the procurement of all goods and services required for Town operations. Purchasing is responsible for assisting with the procurement process to ensure goods and services are obtained at the best value, optimum delivery, and total overall quality to meet the requirements of the requisitioning departments. This is accomplished by obtaining quotes, competitive bids and proposals, establishing interlocal agreements, and enforcing procedures and controls. 

Purchasing must ensure that these responsibilities are met in compliance with Texas Local Government Code Chapter and the Texas Government Code, in addition to other relevant federal, state, and local statutes and codes, and the Town of Little Elm Home Rule Charter.

The Town Council will make final award on any expenditure exceeding the dollar amount governed by the State Competitive Bid Law whether the item is subject to bid or not.

All potential and current vendors doing business with the Town of Little Elm must register as a vendor and complete a Conflict of Interest Questionnaire. To receive payment in the form of direct deposit, an ACH Request Form must be completed and returned to the Finance Department.
