Wake County Human Services seeks to define its own mission and priorities and to build partnerships and community capacity with existing community resources. As a result, the agency may determine its best course is to partner with or contract with an outside entity to help fulfill the agency's mission.  In these circumstances, a centralized contracts management team in the Administration/Operations Division operates in a technical assistance capacity.
 
The Human Services Contracts & Grants Management Team
works closely with the Wake County Finance department to manage grants, requests for proposals, bids, and the procurement of goods and services for all Wake County agencies.
