Welcome to PurchasingThe Georgetown ISD Purchasing Department's Mission is to meet the needs of the students and employees in a timely, efficient manner while procuring products and services at the best value in the best interest of the District and all stakeholders.The GISD Purchasing Department is responsible for procurement of the supplies, materials, equipment and services that are necessary for our schools and offices to function. Bids and solicitations are advertised in local newspapers. All contracts exceeding $50,000 in value are submitted to competitive price review through the use of requests for bids or proposals. For purchases of goods between $10,000 and $50,000, the Purchasing Department relies on quotations taken from several vendors prior to awarding a contract. Written (faxed or email) quotations are primarily used.
