Doing Business with LA County
Depending on the value of purchases and contracts, policies differ regarding the method of purchase and the level of approval needed. Items under $1,500, for example, require no competitive bidding, while purchases over $100,000 generally must be approved by the Board of Supervisors. The County also develops non-exclusive negotiated agreements that enable County departments to take advantage of opportunities to acquire supplies, materials, equipment and value-added services at prices that are substantially lower than through other procurement methods.
