Setting a Standard of Excellence

The Shelby County Purchasing Department is a member of and subscriber to the principles and standards of purchasing practices advocated by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP) and the Institute for Supply Management (ISM). For this reason, we are committed to the development and increased participation of locally-owned small businesses in providing needed goods and services to the Shelby County government.

We are very interested in meeting with you and identifying products and services your company can provide to Shelby County. If you and your company are interested in establishing a business relationship with Shelby County's government, we encourage you to contact us.
