Procurement Department

The Procurement Department has been established to administer the procurement process on behalf of the County. Its responsibilities include:

  • Obtain in a cost effective and responsive manner the materials, equipment, services, and construction required for County Departments in order for those Departments to better serve Forsyth County’s residents and businesses.
  • Provide increased economy in procurement activities, maximize to the fullest extent possible the purchasing value of public funds.
  • Foster effective broad-based competition.
  • Provide safeguards to the maintenance of a procurement system of quality and integrity.
  • Make every effort to enhance the County’s reputation of progressive and business integrity and fairness and equity to all vendors

 

Please note:  

Due to the current circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 response we understand that business closings and social distancing have made it very difficult for potential bidders to locate a Notary Public to Notarize our bid documents.  In order to alleviate some of the concern surrounding the Notary requirement Forsyth County will accept a copy of the bidder’s drivers license in lieu of notarization of the documents, in cases where a notary can not be located, for all Forsyth County solicitations that are due on or before March, 31, 2020.    

   

Forsyth County sells vehicles and miscellaneous surplus on the following internet websites: www.PropertyRoom.com & www.GovDeals.com.
The public is invited to bid on surplus County property. All items are sold “as-is, where-is”.
