Dane County, Wisconsin is home to more than 490,000 residents, Wisconsin┬┐s State Capitol, world-class colleges and universities including the University of Wisconsin, good schools, more than 60 cities, villages, and towns and some of the most productive farms in the state and the nation.

Dane County has beautiful natural spaces, with fish-filled lakes, rivers and streams and parks abundant with opportunities for rest and relaxation. Dane County is also home to one of the few free zoos in the country, and an airport that connects our businesses and citizens to the world.

Dane County is governed by a county executive and a county legislature. The county legislature known as the Board of Supervisors consists of 37 members each elected from single member districts. The county executive is elected in a countywide vote.
Philosophy:
Dane County recognizes the positive impact of local government purchasing goods and services from local producers and vendors whenever possible. The County┬┐s local preference purchasing policy adopted in 2011 prioritizes this approach of reinvesting in the community. The benefits to our community from the local preference purchasing policy include:
  • Significantly more money re-circulates when purchases are made at local businesses;
  • Reduced environmental impact;
  • New jobs provided by local businesses;
  • Local businesses invest in community; and
  • Competition and diversity leads to more choices.
For more information, visit our purchasing website on procurement opportunities and policies.
History:
Dane County was formed in 1836 as a territorial county. It was named after Nathan Dane, a Massachusetts delegate to the Congress of the Confederation who helped carve Wisconsin out of the Northwest Territory.
