Seattle Shifts Contracting and Purchasing to New Department

The City of Seattle recently adopted an ordinance transferring the contracting and purchasing functions from the Department of Executive Administration to a newly created Department of Finance and Administrative Services (FAS).  

The new mega FAS Department will also include certain other functions previously housed in other city departments.  Functions of the former Fleets and Facilities Department, former Department of Executive Administration, Customer Service Bureau, and former Department of Finance have all been transferred to the new FAS Department.

Ordinance 123361 was approved by the Seattle City Council on July 26, 2010, and signed by Mayor Mike McGinn on July 30, 2010.
