Welcome to the Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department was created in 1982 by Mayor Antonio Marino to centralize all procurement activity for the City of Lynn in response to new procurement regulations defined by the State Legislature. The Purchasing Department processes all procurement requests for all Municipal Departments and the School Department using the MUNIS System as the primary database. In 1999, the purchasing process became fully automated with direct input of all requests for material through purchase order placement.

The Purchasing Department's mission is to administer the use of the applicable Massachusetts General Laws, MGL, to all procurements to guarantee fair and level competition resulting in the best value to the City of Lynn.
