Bids   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The district shall purchase equipment, supplies and services using competitive bidding when required by law and in accordance with statutory requirements for bidding and bidding procedures. In those circumstances where the law does not require competitive bidding, the Board of Trustees may request that a contract be competitively bid if the Board determines that it is in the best interest of the district to do so.

When the Board has determined that it is in the best interest of the district, the Board may piggyback onto the contract of another public agency or corporation to lease or purchase equipment or supplies to the extent authorized by law.

To ensure that good value is received for funds expended, specifications shall be carefully designed and shall describe in detail the quality, delivery and service required.

To assist the district in determining whether bidders are responsible, the Board may require pre-qualification procedures as allowed by law and specified in administrative regulation.
