Governor Whitmer’s announcement has prompted the City of Warren to take immediate action to help reverse the record number of cases and deaths in Michigan. Effective this Wednesday, all departments in the city will reactivate the remote work plans beginning on Wednesday. Mayor Fouts had ordered these plans into effect earlier this year. Most employees* will be working from home and those that work inside will be required to wear a mask, social distance, and sanitize while at city hall. City Hall will be closed to the public until further notice. Warren has been at the forefront of successfully combating COVID-19 and Mayor Fouts intends to keep us in a leadership position to protect our employees and the community while continuing to deliver effective city services to our residents. All hands-on deck meaning that all of us need to follow the simple protocol of masks, sanitizing and social distancing. Masks are to protect others and yourself with a recent study indicating it’s the single most important factor to stop the spread of this virus.
*We are requiring most employees to work from home unless they are absolutely needed at city hall.
Under Sec. 2-333 of the Warren Code, the City of Warren, Michigan requires “Departments, divisions, offices and agencies to procure all equipment, material, supplies and services through the purchasing division of the Office of the Controller. The Office of Purchasing is not responsible for school districts within the City of Warren.
The primary objective of the Office of Purchasing is to procure goods and services for the City Departments and Divisions, for which it acts as an agent, through the use of sound, prudent, and consistent purchasing practices. Political and arbitrary considerations do not affect awards. The Office of Purchasing makes decisions in the City’s, and therefore its citizens’, best interests.
All qualified vendors, whether individuals, small businesses, or large corporations, are invited to compete for the city’s business.
In order to best serve the interests of city government and the business community, the Office of Purchasing utilizes, to the maximum extent possible, contracts of one or more year’s duration where it makes economic sense to do so. Therefore, goods or services which lend themselves to contracts will be solicited far more infrequently than those with usage that does not warrant a contract.
