The City of Farmington Hills Purchasing Division received the Agency of the Year Award from the Michigan Public Purchasing Officers Association (MPPOA), during the MPPOA Annual Awards Dinner held in Traverse City in mid-November.
The award recognizes an entity for work or innovations in public purchasing, involvement within the community, and contributions to MPPOA and to the purchasing profession.
The Purchasing Division was honored for excellence in cooperative purchasing and cost saving efforts. The Division was also recognized for its involvement in the LEED Gold-Certified City Hall Revitalization Project and for the creation of the Michigan Inter-Governmental Trade Network (MITN) system, which connects local government agencies and vendors.
The Agency of the Year Award was accepted by Michael Lasley, Director of Central Services for the City of Farmington Hills. “It was an honor to accept on behalf of the purchasing team and the City,” said Lasley, who oversees the City’s purchasing and information technology functions.
The award will be formally presented to the City at the regular City Council meeting on Monday, December 10. For more information, contact the City Manager’s Office at 248-871-2500.
