Procurement Rules & Regulations



Purchasing is an integral part of Utah County Government and is a division of the Utah County Clerk/Auditor’s Office. Utah County Departments utilize our Purchasing Department and its excellent, professionally trained staff to procure goods and services in the most efficient, economical, and timely manner.

The purchasing staff utilizes the Utah County financial policies and procedures as they follow through on a strong pledge to serve the citizens of Utah County at the lowest possible cost to the taxpayer. This is accomplished through efficient planning and management including centralized and volume purchasing. Competitive bidding and other open competition practices are utilized to insure fairness in County transactions.
