Each Buyer is proficient in the commodities they are assigned and have extensive training in the technical aspects of the goods and services they buy.

Gift Message for Vendors: 

While all of us at JEA appreciate the good intentions with which gifts are given, we must be sensitive to the positions of special trust and responsibility we hold given the nature of our business.

Due to our ongoing obligation to our stakeholders, the giving and acceptance of gifts may lead to the appearance of impropriety.

In light of this, I must inform you that JEA’s corporate Ethics Policy and the City of Jacksonville (COJ) Ethics Ordinance prohibit employees from accepting gifts valued over $100 from vendors, and accumulated gifts from the same vendor must not exceed $250 per calendar year.
