The City of Haverhill and the Haverhill Public Schools recognize two valid methods for placing an order for goods and services with a vendor:
1. The issuance of a Purchase Order by the Purchasing Department
2. The use of a Procurement Card
City and School employees may not make commitments to vendors for the purchase of goods or services. Such commitments are not legally binding. In Massachusetts, a vendor seeking to enter into a municipal contract has the responsibility of knowing the limitations on a municipality’s contracting power, and the vendor cannot recover on a contract that does not comply with the law. Invoices submitted for such purchases will not be honored and any Invoices received without a Purchase Order will not be processed for payment.
If you have any questions regarding this policy, please contact the City’s Purchasing Director at 978-420-3606 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
