STATE PURCHASING Division

The State Purchasing Division (SPD) oversees the procurement functions for the State of Georgia and manages all policies related to procurement.  SPD negotiates Statewide Contracts and provides technical assistance to State Entities in conducting and evaluating entity-specific competitive bids. We also provide electronic sourcing tools that allow procurement professionals to post and award their own competitive bids. SPD manages and monitors use of State purchasing cards, procurement tools that allow State employees to obtain goods and services quickly and efficiently. SPD also offers training, including a certification program, to provide procurement professionals with the knowledge and skills they need to perform their job duties within the legal and policy constraints of the State of Georgia.

Statewide Contracts

​​​​

​By leveraging the buying power of state entities and identifying shared needs, SPD negotiates discount prices for quality products and services in the form of Statewide Contracts. These contracts are available to all state entities, including city, county, and other local government entities. In addition to discounted prices, SPD saves State Entities the time, labor and costs associated with managing the bidding process themselves.​
