Purchasing Department

The Finance Department is responsible for the accurate accounting of all receipts and disbursements of the City of Berea. The Purchasing Division handles the processing of all payments for the City of Berea including the Municipal Court.


The City of Berea has a decentralized purchasing department. This means that the departments negotiate with vendors and suppliers and after submitting a requisition to the purchasing department and obtaining approval, they order their goods and services. 

The purchasing department issues a purchase order in accordance with the department's budgets, obtains and processes the paperwork and pays the vendors for goods and services rendered.
