The Mission of the Sylacauga Housing Authority Procurement Department is to support the purpose and goals of SHA. The department is responsible for the procuring and purchasing of quality goods, while acquiring services at competitive prices. The procurement department works cohesively with the Accounting Department providing proper financial stewardship for invoicing and payments.
The Procurement Department handles the entire procurement process for the SHA Departments, from requisition and contract negotiation through ordering, receiving, invoicing and payments. We are also responsible for the disposal of goods that are no longer needed by the Authority. We achieve our mission through dedication to excellence in customer service, providing avenues of access to businesses, processing orders in a timely manner, streamlining operations, pursuing cost savings, identifying new sources of supply, developing relationships with small, minority, and women-owned vendors, and complying with the laws of the State of Alabama.
Our focus is on creating value for our business partners, providing a safe and healthy work environment for our employees while complying with all regulatory requirements. The department is responsible for ensuring fair and equitable treatment of all vendors who work with the Sylacauga Housing Authority (SHA). SHA works energetically to accomplish the mission while complying with all applicable federal, state and local laws.
It is the policy and practice of SHA to afford quality vendors and contractors, regardless of social or economic classification. As we transform into the “Housing Authority of Tomorrow”, the results of our endless efforts in the procuring of quality goods and services in a fair, open, competitive and respectful process has been rewarding for everyone involved.
To accomplish our mission of providing affordable housing, it is imperative that SHA works with vendors and contractors that can deliver the highest quality of goods and services at the best value. In order to maximize its contracting dollars, SHA looks for as much competition as the open market will provide. If you are looking to procure with us, we are always looking for new qualified vendors.
