The goal of the Pinal County Purchasing Division is to acquire quality goods and services for county citizens and the departments that serve them. We procure everything from Ammunition to Zoning consultants. Our procurement professionals are creative, critical thinkers with outstanding customer service skills, who enjoy helping others achieve their goals within the confines of applicable laws, procurement codes, and best practices.
The principal objective of the Pinal County Purchasing Division is to acquire quality goods and services that meet the County's needs at a reasonable price while ensuring a fair and competitive process. This is accomplished through the use of sound, competitive procurement procedures.

- To conduct all procurement according to Arizona state law and the Pinal County Procurement Code

- To maximize competition and provide interested and qualified vendors with the opportunity to offer their products or services to the County
