DJ – Purchasing

The function of purchasing is to serve the educational program by providing the necessary supplies, equipment, and services.

The acquisition of supplies, equipment, and services will be centralized in the business office, which functions under the supervision of the Superintendent, and through whose office all purchasing transactions are conducted.

While the School Board assigns the Superintendent the responsibility for the quality and quantity of purchases made, the Business Administrator shall be responsible for all phases of purchasing in accordance with school board policy; for requisitions, current order purchasing, writing of specifications for bids, deliveries, storages, and other tasks related to the purchases, acceptance and distribution of supplies.

The prime guidelines governing this responsibility are that all purchases fall within the framework of budgetary limitations and that they be consistent with the approved educational goals and programs of the District.
