Welcome to the Erie County Purchasing web page. Purchasing coordinates sealed-bid procedures for the supplies, equipment, and services the County offices and agencies need. By securing the highest quality goods and services in the most cost-effective manner and by removing the need to duplicate procedures among various County agencies, we save the taxpayers thousands of dollars a year.

The links on this site will explain in greater detail the County’s purchasing guidelines, which are outlined in the Ohio Revised Code. We also have a list of frequently asked questions that explain bidding procedures more clearly. The FAQ's should be particularly helpful to vendors.
