The Procure to Pay (P2P) Department enhances total value without compromising water quality, safety, or brand by leveraging the Company’s purchasing power for the procurement of goods and services. The P2P Department works with the internal departments to source goods and services, setup suppliers, issue Purchase Orders (PO’s) and provide payment to vendors.
Competitive procurement is the preferred sourcing method for goods and services over specific dollar amounts as identified by our audit controls. Internal departments are responsible for conducting competitive sourcing in coordination with the P2P Department. Highly technical or specialized professional services are engaged in a prudent manner and may be sourced with Vice President approval.
Throughout the procurement contract lifecycle, the P2P Department will work with internal departments to negotiate and execute supply, services and construction agreements.

The Company’s policy of purchasing environmentally preferable products is one element in our continuing, long-range commitment to the environment. By adopting this guideline, we hope to likewise engage the producers and suppliers of office products to support wider adoption of environmentally preferable products and to also encourage them to reduce their impact on the environment.
Connecticut Water believes its responsibilities to serve families and communities include a commitment to supplier diversity. Our suppliers should reflect the communities we are privileged to serve. Connecticut Water’s supplier diversity program is designed to encourage, recruit and utilize women, minority, veteran, small business and LGBTQ+ enterprises within our supply chain.
As a result of our 2019 merger with SJW Group, Connecticut Water has shared a Supplier Diversity Plan with the Connecticut Public Utilities Regulatory Authority (PURA). A more formal program is on track to be implemented in early 2021.
