CITY PURCHASE ORDER REQUIREMENT
City purchases are authorized only if a City Purchase Order is issued in advance of the transaction, indicating that the ordering department has sufficient funds available to pay for the purchase. Such a Purchase Order is to be provided to the Contractor by either the City Buyer or the ordering department. The City will not be liable for payment of any purchases made by its employees without appropriate purchase authorization issued by the City Purchasing Agent.
Contractors providing good or services without a signed City Purchase Order do so at their own risk. Please direct questions regarding this requirement to the City Finance Department at 703-385-7875 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
