4:63 - Quality Purchasing

Policy 4:63

Business and Non-Instructional Operations

Quality Purchasing

Standardization of Supplies and Equipment

To help achieve both quality control and the price advantage of quality purchasing, the administration is encouraged to:

  1. cooperate with municipalities and schools in joint purchasing;
  2. set specifications for goods and services as needed;
  3. cite as examples several existing, commercially available “standard brands” that meet specifications acceptably; and
  4. invite vendors to bid on those examples, or comparable ones which the vendors believe to be acceptable according to the specifications.
