After a review of all of the nominations, the Selection Committee unanimously chose him as the winner for his teamwork, strong work ethic, friendly and courteous disposition, and willingness to always go above and beyond expectation.
Fred began his employment with the City of Milford on April 27, 2012, as Purchasing Agent. Fred is vital to ensuring all city business continually moves forward. He is responsible for the management of the centralized operation of purchasing for the city government. Every city department payment requisition is reviewed and issued a purchase order by Fred. With his knowledge of purchasing principles, practices, rules, and regulations governing municipal procurement, Fred exercises independent judgment and initiative as he evaluates suppliers, pricing, and quality of merchandise.
Fred initiates and coordinates equipment maintenance and storeroom inventory programs for all city departments. He assists in issuing RFPs and RFQs and enforces compliance with purchasing contracts. All bid packages are prepared by Fred. He works with the departments, architects, and engineers to compile everything that is needed for each project. He disseminates all bid packages, fields all bidder questions, posts bid changes, and bid results.
Fred’s affable nature is much appreciated. When the MUNIS program was rolled out, he assisted with knowledge, patience, and humor. During the past year, Fred spearheaded the acquisition of PPE supplies for all city departments. He worked tirelessly and diligently to assure the city received quality products at fair prices and in a timely manner. These are just a few of the many reasons the Mayor extends his sincere congratulations and appreciation to Fred for the outstanding attributes he exhibits as Employees of the Month.
Again, congratulations to Fred!
