The mission of the Purchasing Department is to procure goods and services through Purchase Orders (PO's) and Contract Service Agreement's (CSA's), while providing excellent customer service to administrators, teachers, vendors, and all customers, internal and external. The Purchasing Department consists of General and Capital Purchasing.
The General Purchasing Department is responsible for procuring goods and services, purchased outside of Bond funds, for the entire district. General Purchasing ensures that State and Federal Laws, Board Policies (BP’s) and Administrative Regulations (AR’s) are being followed prior to completing a purchase or contract. Following AR 3230, AR 3305, and AR 3311, General Purchasing may be required to obtain or request additional quotes, or draft and release a Request for Proposal (RFP), as needed.
