The Purchasing Department of the City of Richmond, located at 50 North 5th Street is a service oriented department with two full-time employees.  A fundamental purchasing objective for the City of Richmond is to obtain quality goods and services at minimum cost.  Purchasing also has the added responsibility of protecting the interests of the taxpayers and must continually function in an environment of public scrutiny. 

 Statutes, ordinances, and regulations generally require state and local governments to conduct their purchasing operation on the basis of competitive bidding.  This requirement is intended to secure sound value, to guard against favoritism and profiteering at public expense, and to safeguard the interest of the seller by providing equal opportunities to compete for government business.  The ways and means of obtaining prices is as important, if not more important, than the prices themselves.   

 Any business interested in doing business with the City of Richmond is asked to provide our office with your company‚Äôs information including company name, address, contact person, telephone number, and company profile.  This information may be brought or mailed to City of Richmond, Purchasing Dept., 50 North 5th Street, Richmond, IN 47374 or e-mailed to
