Purchasing is a division under the Finance Department responsible for the procurement of materials, supplies, equipment, and services in the most effective and economical way for the City of Forney. The goal of the City of Forney's Purchasing Policy is to ensure that all City departments and functions receive maximum benefit from the expenditure of City funds and that vendors will make a reasonable profit in providing goods and services to the City. Success in this effort will be best achieved with the cooperation of each City department, the Finance Department, and Vendors.
New Vendor Forms
Organizations doing business with the City for the first time will need to complete the new vendor information packet (located below) prior to submitting an invoice for payment.
The Interlocal Cooperation Act, Gov. Code §791.001 et seq., gives cities the flexibility to contract with other governmental entities, including state agencies, districts, counties and municipalities. The City of Forney promotes the utilization of cooperative purchasing agreements. Cooperative procurement efforts may result when two or more entities combine their requirements to obtain advantages of volume purchases from the same supplier or multiple suppliers using a single IFB (Invitation for Bid) or RFP (Request for Proposal).
