Abstract

Action Requested: Vote on a request to approve detention food purchases under the US Communities Cooperative contract with US Foods (vendor) in excess of $100,000

 

Introduction & Background: The Chatham County Detention division has used US Foods as one of the food providers for several years.  In June of 2016 County finance and detention staff met with the US Communities Cooperative contracts representative to move our US Foods account to the new cooperative contract opportunity.  The cooperative contract allowed the county to benefit from additional food discounts over more products being used by the Detention Center.
