Corrupt and Unethical
Buyer II (Former Employee) –  DowntownOctober 6, 2017
If you are a public purchasing professional, be very careful with Norfolk Purchasing. They are under numerous investigations. The Supervisor recently received FBI subpoenas (in the VA Pilot).
They disregard public procurement laws and operate completely in a vacuum. Everything they do is opposite of every other municipality in the State. You've been warned!
Pros
Cool downtown location
Cons
Corrupt, unethical, illegal, inept staff and management
