Edward M. Jordan, Director of Purchasing
100 Development Court
Kingston, NY 12401
The Purchasing Department seeks to maximize the benefits that Ulster County citizens receive from the expenditure of public funds on goods and services in a professional, ethical, and lawful manner, through a program dedicated to transparency, impartiality, accountability, and excellent customer service. Purchasing manages all aspects of the procurement process, including the identification and development of sources, assistance to departments in the creation of specifications, and the solicitation of bids, quotes, and requests for proposals. The Department also includes the Mailroom, which is tasked with delivering all interoffice, outgoing, and incoming mail for all County Departments.
Purchasing is responsible for initiating and maintaining effective and professional relationships with Vendors and County Departments, and to serve as the exclusive channel through which all requests for County purchases and price quotations are handled. Central to the responsibility is the administration of County Purchasing Policies and Procedures as stewardship to Ulster County taxpayers.
