The City of Niagara Falls' procurement system operates under the guidelines of New York State General Municipal Law.
The Purchasing Division works closely with each of the City's departments to provide information and direction to the personnel assigned to perform the purchasing functions. Each Department is provided a "Purchasing Manual" outlining, in detail, the guidelines to be followed when obtaining goods and services to maintain their daily operation.
All Purchase orders are finalized and issued from this office under the approval of the Purchasing Agent. The orders are entered into the City's main computer system by the responsible person(s) in each department. Any payments are made through the City Controller's Department.
