The Purchasing Manual is designed to achieve three (3) goals:
- Follow the law and board policy on purchasing;
- Promote efficiency in the purchasing practices;
- Achieve savings of money through proper purchasing practices.
We ask you, the user of the purchasing system, to help achieve these goals through proper planning. Please allow yourself enough time between generating a purchase order and the actual date materials or services are needed. Please think of purchasing in terms of a whole year. What items do you need on an annual basis?
This manual should be shared with all staff who are involved in the purchasing process. It is imperative that everyone adheres to all purchasing laws and guidelines.
