The Purchasing Department is responsible for the centralized procurement of all equipment, materials, and supplies to be furnished, sold, or leased to the school district, and for the competitive contracting of services, including for public works or construction projects. The Department vision is to create customer satisfaction by providing value and proficiency to each purchase request, while ensuring procurement is performed according to applicable laws and District policies. In conjunction with processing orders, the Department generates bids and requests for quotes and coordinates cooperative purchasing through county, state, city, and consortium bids to affect cost savings.
