Purchasing

Lowndes County is required by law to maintain a central purchasing department. This purchasing department is responsible for purchasing all equipment, supplies, services and materials for the county departments.

A purchase order is required before any purchase can be made by Lowndes County. The Mississippi Code will not allow Lowndes County to pay invoices for purchases where a purchase order was not obtained prior to acceptance of an order for goods or services. Additional information for purchasing from Lowndes County can be obtained from Purchase Clerk Terry Thompson.
