Purchasing & Contracts

  Maintain the public trust in spending public funds by meeting the highest standard of ethics and performance.


The purchasing department supports every staff member in every department in every division, on every campus, and we do it in one or more capacities every day.  Every  activity on campus includes involvement or support from Purchasing, from multi-million dollar construction projects down to daily delivery of mail.

The Purchasing staff handle the District's purchasing, contracting, bidding, asset management, shipping and receiving, copy/printing services, mail services and contracts management.

With regard to Purchasing and Contracting, here is what we do every day:

  • Save the District money, time and risk;
  • Protect the District against liability, fraud and inappropriate business practices; and
  • Procure the right goods or services, at the right time, the right way and at the right price.
