Procurement Services Mission and Goals

Our mission is to serve our community’s health needs by demonstrating good stewardship and best value in the procurement of goods and services through the unbiased and fair competitive purchasing processes.
Our goals are to:

  • Coordinate and facilitate knowledgeable, evidenced-based purchasing choices
  • Secure items through the competitive process and implement a quality assurance plan to identify and remove barriers
  • Procure goods and services from responsible contractors, vendors and suppliers who do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, disability, gender or sexual orientation
  • Procure goods and services from responsible contractors, vendors and suppliers who do not pay or offer remuneration to induce referrals, except in accordance with applicable law and regulations
  • Encourage, promote and increase participation of Small, Minority and/or Women-Owned Business Enterprises (SMWBE) in the procurement process
  • Procure goods and services from Bexar County vendors when price, performance and quality factors are equal
