The Purchasing Department issues more than 5,500 purchase orders annually totaling more that $170,000,000.
The Department’s goal is to obtain the best value for goods and services while complying with New York State General Municipal Law which requires competitively bidding purchases for goods and services greater than $20,000 and public works greater than $35,000.

The Department processes approximately 150 contracts and contract extensions annually. The RCSD is also eligible to buy from NY State contracts,
