PURCHASING

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

The Board declares its intention to purchase competitively without prejudice and to seek maximum educational value for every dollar expended.

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

The Business Administrator is responsible for the quality and quantity of purchases made. 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.

Individual school purchasing must also conform with the approved procurement policies of the Iron County School District.

The Iron County School District/Board reserves the right to accept or reject any or all bids in the interest of the district.
