The function of purchasing is vital to the overall success of a winter maintenance program. Purchasing spends tax funds to obtain the materials and equipment to keep state maintained roadways operating efficiently during snow and ice events. Each district's winter plan should define their specific quantities and types of anti-icing and de-icing materials on hand.
The PRO EOC Sharepoint website is a valuable tool to locate brine makers and salt sheds in the Districts. Once there, just click on Emergency Operations Center to find the listings of brine makers and salt sheds. This chapter discusses the procedures for purchasing materials and equipment.
