Responsibilities

The San Juan County Central Purchasing Department is the central buying unit for San Juan County. The scope of responsibilities includes the acquisition of supplies, equipment, and services required for the operation and functions of all County departments. The department is also responsible for the collection and disposal of all obsolete, worn-out and unusable surplus tangible property which includes: vehicles, heavy equipment, office furnishings, etc., by means of sealed bids and/or public auction.

Our office and main warehouse facility are both located at 213 South Oliver Drive, Aztec, New Mexico. Our hours of operation are from 8:00am to 5:00pm, (MDT) Monday through Friday, except for Holidays.

All procurements are made in accordance with the New Mexico Procurement Code (N.M.S.A. 1978 Annotated, as amended), and the San Juan County Purchasing Policies and Procedures. All purchases of goods or services by San Juan County must be authorized by Central Purchasing, who will issue a Purchase Order. The exception to this is the purchase of goods of less than $1500.00 through the County Purchasing Card Program or of goods of less than $250.00 that are obtainable from local vendors, which can be procured by authorized County personnel through use of the Small Purchase Order Program.

Sales Representatives are received in a friendly and courteous manner during all hours of our operation. However, due to variation in our Buyers workloads, we recommend that appointments be requested by phone when possible. All vendors are encouraged to complete a Vendor Application Form (at no charge). The form is available electronically at our website or at our office location. This completed registration form will be placed on file and will provide our staff with information about your business, including products and services available through your company.
