Mandates

The City's purchasing policies are administered in strict compliance with applicable Federal laws, the State of Rhode Island's "Award of Municipal Contracts" law, Title 45, Chapter 55, and the City of Pawtucket's "Home Rule Charter."

The "System"

The procurement system in place is centralized, with all purchasing requests routing through Purchasing in a "requisition" format, and a "purchase order" end result.

It is of paramount importance to this office that the citizens of Pawtucket be assured that the procurement policies employed are fair and equitable, and that the highest ethical standards are expected of vendors, City Employees, and agents of the City having official responsibility for procurment transaction.
