Purchasing & Accounts Payable

  • The school district purchasing objective is to acquire the best products, materials, and services at the lowest practical prices within relevant statutes and policies.

    Public schools in Texas are required to follow specific guidelines when procuring goods or services. The most efficient method that we follow is by utilizing membership with purchasing cooperatives.  See our Prospective Vendor Letter for the list of purchasing cooperatives to which Forney ISD is a member.

    All requests for new vendors are reviewed and approved based on internal requests by a Forney ISD department or campus administrator.  We invite new vendors to share information with the administrator relevant to their industry.  Department and campus administrator contact information can be found on the Forney ISD website. Be prepared to provide the Purchasing Cooperative contract award information.

    Campus administrators must be allowed to focus their attention on the educational needs of their students.  Solicitors, vendors, collectors, or salespersons shall not be permitted to confer employees during school hours without the prior approval of the Superintendent or designee.

    All Trustees, employees, vendors, contractors, agents, consultants, volunteers, and any other parties who are involved in the District’s financial transactions shall act with integrity and diligence in duties involving the District’s fiscal resources.
