Main> Working With Central Hudson> Purchasing & Contracts
The Purchasing Division is located at Central Hudson's Corporate Headquarters in Poughkeepsie, New York. Purchasing has company-wide responsibility for procurement of all materials, supplies, equipment and services required to operate our electric and gas systems. Our objective is to obtain maximum value for each dollar spent through fair competitive bidding with vendors and contractors. 

The Purchasing Division interfaces with all other areas of the Company to obtain, on all purchases, the lowest cost to the Company. This is consistent with such considerations as suitability, quality, quantity, delivery, terms and safety. Qualified contractors and sources of supply are developed and maintained to encourage competitive bidding.

Contractor and Vendor Questionnaire Forms provide basic information so Purchasing can categorize companies for future supply of materials and services. Questionnaire forms are kept on file and updated as changes occur.

A contract is issued when services are performed on Central Hudson properties and/or when liability issues become a concern. Contractors must furnish proof of insurance as stated on Central Hudson's "Minimum Insurance Requirements for Contractors." This coverage must remain in effect during the entire term of the contract.
