Procurement Director 

It is the policy and practice of HAWS Procurement Department to afford quality vendors and contractors, regardless of social or economic classification, the maximum opportunity to participate in contracting opportunities.  The result of our efforts is the procurement of quality goods and services in a fair, open, competitive and respectful process for everyone involved.

To accomplish our mission of providing affordable housing, it is imperative that HAWS works with vendors and contractors that can deliver the highest quality of goods and services at the best value.  In order to maximize its contracting dollars, HAWS looks for much competition as the open market will provide.  We are always looking for new qualified vendors.  We obtain these by:

  • Placing notices of upcoming contracting opportunities in the Winston-Salem Journal, various minority newspapers and journals, and on our website.
  • Through recommendations and references from our technical and program experts
  • Applications to be placed on the Vendors/Contractors Mailing List
