01-24-2012 Regular School Board Meeting
Agenda Item #23

Purchasing Bids, RFPs, RFQs, and Sales & Services Agreements


At the request of schools and departments, the Office of Purchasing Services sends out requests for bids and tabulates bids from vendors. Committees or individuals review the tabulated bids and make one of three recommendations: (1) low bid be accepted, (2) non-low bid be approved, or (3) all bids be rejected due to cost or not meeting specifications. If a non-low bid is recommended, justification must be provided by the persons reviewing the bids to ensure that the best product for the lowest cost is purchased.

Attached are summaries and/or recommendations for Bid Awards, RFPs, RFQs, and Sales & Services Agreements. Detailed information, including tabulation of each bid, can be reviewed in the School Board Office or in the Office of Purchasing Services.
