Our Purpose...

The La Porte ISD Purchasing Office is responsible for the organization and

administration of procurement/purchasing for the District in accordance

with the authority delegated by the Superintendent and the Board of

Trustees.

 

The goal of the purchasing office is to provide, at the time and place

needed in the proper quantity and of the proper quality: all materials,

supplies, tools, and services required for the District's operations at best

value while maintaining a reputation for fairness and integrity.

 

This District operates a procurement system that allows site-based

management with a central location for purchasing. Although purchasing is

directed to a central location, the budget managers are responsible for

their departments and, based on state and local purchasing policies, may

make determinations on which vendors bring the best value to meet the

needs of their department/campus. Having a system where the purchasing

takes place in a central location allows for a more efficient process having

a central contact with vendors and the business community.
