Purchasing is a subset of the Finance Department. Purchases are conducted for the company through the Purchasing Department; this includes supply acquisitions, inventory replenishment, equipment sales/disposal, and capital equipment. These transactions are governed by Alabama State Bid Law and Daphne Utilities Internal Control Standards. Competition in our purchasing process is created by obtaining quotes on transactions with a value range of $1,000 to $15,000. Transactions over $15,000 require formal sealed bids, which are advertised on the bulletin board at our Main Office and/or local newspaper, and conducted in compliance with Alabama State Bid Laws.
