Only 41 other counties achieved this distinction in 2021.

The AEP Award is earned by public and non-profit agencies that demonstrate a commitment to procurement excellence. This annual program recognizes procurement organizations that embrace innovation, professionalism, productivity, leadership and e-procurement.

Fulton County Government, Fulton County Schools, Georgia Department of Transportation, Gwinnett County, Gwinnett County Public Schools, and Alpharetta were the other metro Atlanta award winners this year.
