Request for approval to use the department’s purchasing card to purchase food, beverages and related supplies not to exceed $15,000.00 during FY 2021-2022.




Background and Discussion:


These funds would be for election related expenses including food for staff working extended hours during elections. Staff are required to be on duty in many elections for times exceeding 18 hours. In order to facilitate efficient running of elections the EA would like to have food available to staff to allow for them to remain on site during important days in the election calendar.
