In coordination with AHA’s procurement policy and federal guidelines, the Purchasing Dept. coordinates acquisition of non-construction goods and services for the Authority. As AHA has moved toward HUD’s Asset management model and reduced centralization of operational needs, site managers are able to coordinate on-hand stock and service needs up to the HUD allowed micro-purchasing level. This practice ensures a more nimble organization with better ability to react to property needs and a streamlined service delivery for tenants. For Authority wide contracts, Purchasing makes every effort to ensure the greatest value for the dollar spent while maintaining compliance with applicable Federal, State and local laws as well as applicable HUD regulations.
