Review Purchasing Policy Changes and Attend a Workshop to Learn More

If you facilitate purchases for your school or department, this news is for you. The Board of Education has approved a policy change on purchasing guidelines effective July 1. Check out a comparison of changes here or in the summary below: 

  • For purchases under $3,499: Pcard is the preferred method of payment in accordance with district policy.
  • For purchases $3,500-$149,999: Two price quotes must be obtained for all purchases including professional services that are not under current contract.
  • For purchases over $150,000: Formal competition (bid or RFP) is required, including contract modifications.

To learn how these changes can increase purchasing flexibility and timely invoice processing for your department or school, attend a workshop. Sessions will be from 8-10:30 a.m. and 12:30-3 p.m. June 16, Aug. 9, Aug. 14, Aug. 17 and Aug. 18 at the Daniels Fund, 101 Monroe St. For more information, contact Ellen Zachary in Strategic Sourcing, visit the training library on The Commons or click here
