The ECWA maintains an Open Vendor Policy, welcoming any and all potential bidders. It is our intent to implement and strictly enforce purchasing and disposal guidelines so as to:
openly promote fair competition
acquire goods and services that provide the best product from a responsible vendor at the most reasonable price
guard against favoritism, improvidence, extravagance, fraud and corruption
Formal bids are advertised in various local publications. All bids are distributed out of ECWA’s Cashier’s Office at our Ellicott Square location, 295 Main Street, Room 350, Buffalo, NY 14203-2415 or the ECWA Service Center, 3030 Union Road, Cheektowaga, NY 14227-1097.
