How to do business with LPISD

Most purchases are made from vendors who have been awarded bids through the bidding process managed by the District's Purchasing Department, as well as with vendors that have been awarded a contract through our Purchasing Cooperative (Co-Op) affiliations.

La Porte ISD Bidding Process:To begin the process of becoming an awarded vendor with LPISD, please register by completing our Vendor Application.  This does NOT make you an awarded vendor, it ONLY places you on the notification list for upcoming solicitations. Your company must still respond to a solicitation and be awarded a contract by the LPISD Board of Trustees.

  • When a solicitation is advertised that matches the commodity you selected during your registration process, you will be notified via email of the bid opportunity.

  • If you respond and are awarded a contract, then you become an awarded vendor.

  • You can now do business with our district for the commodity you were awarded.

  • You can find information on current bids opportunities in our Current Bids page, as well as a list of historical proposal information.

  • Awarded proposals and tabulations can viewed by visiting our Procurement Tabs/Recaps page.

Cooperative Purchasing:  In addition to being awarded a contract through a LPISD solicitation, vendor's can be awarded contracts in any of the cooperative programs that we participate.  To find a list of these cooperatives, visit the Links area of our website.
