No-Gift Policy

Notice to County Providers of Goods and Services
It is our pleasure to serve you and your trust in our commitment to integrity and fairness. As part of this commitment, we have a strict no-gift policy which requires our employees to refuse gifts or favors of any nature*. While we understand the spirit in which you might offer a gift, we encourage our vendors to put the money and resources into reducing product cost and making improvements to business processes.

Thank you for your support in helping us to honor this policy.

* Gifts received will be returned.
