Staff Summary

                     The Lake County Board adopted the Purchasing Ordinance in 1986 and has been amended several times, most recently in 2019.

                     The Purchasing Ordinance governs the procurement of goods and services for Lake County departments with four corresponding polices: Surplus, Responsible Bidder, Vendor Disclosure and Conflict of Interest, and Procurement Card.

                     The Purchasing Division and the Office of the State’s Attorney commenced a thorough review of the Purchasing Ordinance resulting in this recommendation for changes to seven sections along with several minor clarifications.
