Fire Department Procurement
Procurement monitors all purchases under $25,500.00 and directs those that are over the same. Any purchases over $25,000.00 must be approved by the City Manager. Purchases $50,000.00 and above must go before The City of Miami Commission for approval. The Procurement section prepares the paperwork for purchases and oversees the bidding process through fruition. Once approved by the Commission, procurement confirms that the requisitions for the purchases are made and addresses any problems that may occur during this process. This Section monitors all of Fire-Rescue’s contracts and keeps their current status in check.
Payroll handles the daily recording of time use, anniversary and longevity raises, promotions, job changes, and other related issues. This section ensures that the employees of the Department receive their paychecks in a timely manner.
