The people in the San Bernardino County Purchasing Department play a key role in making county services and programs possible. From the furniture in county offices to the fish that swim in county lakes, the purchasing team connects the business world with the government world to acquire the tools that serve nearly 2.2 million people in America’s largest county.

Purchasing customers will start to see some new branding that reflects and reinforces the department’s dedication to excellence and service. The branding centers on the message, “Building Bridges in Procurement: Fostering Diversity. Nurturing Growth. Delivering Value.”

With this approach, the department reaffirms its commitment to supporting local businesses, thereby championing economic growth and prosperity throughout the county.

“Both our external and internal communities deserve the best service and user experience when interfacing with purchasing,” said County Purchasing Director Pete Mendoza. “The unveiling of this dynamic new branding symbolizes more than just a cosmetic change. It represents a profound renewal of dedication and excellence within the communities we serve.”
