The Purchasing Department coordinates the District’s bids for instructional and athletic supplies and equipment. This includes advertising, public bid openings, tabulations, and preparation of information for approval by the School Board.
All procedures must be in compliance with PA School Code bidding laws and regulations. The District participates in a Joint Purchasing Consortium along with other Chester County districts and municipalities. This participation increases our purchasing power and decreases prices for paper, fuel oil, gasoline, audio visual equipment, as well as other supplies and services. Our District is also a member of a statewide purchasing consortium for computer equipment and other large equipment items.
All purchase orders must be approved before they can be processed.
