How does the procurement process work?
District Purchasing Procedures (exclusive of Public Works projects) require Buyers to obtain three quotes for purchases over $2,500 and to select that service or product that provides the best value to the District. Buyers may choose to single or sole source a purchase if the product or service is unique and cannot be reasonably provided by any other source; the product or service cannot be reasonably obtained due to geographic location of potential vendors; or, the vendor has a distinct knowledge of District needs based on prior activity with the District.
