Doing Business with PPS
Purchasing & Contracting performs a wide variety of competitive solicitations on behalf of the District's departments and schools. Purchases above $150,000 for goods and services or above $100,000 for construction, architecture, engineering, or related services require a competitive, centrally managed, publicly advertised formal solicitation.
All formal solicitations, including Requests for Proposals and Invitations to Bid, are posted in PlanetBids (see vendor registration link below) and published in the Business Tribune.
Purchases below the formal solicitation dollar thresholds are initiated by individual departments and schools.
Portland Public Schools strongly encourages vendors to register on PlanetBids to receive notification of formal solicitations. Registration is at no cost and allows vendors access to view and respond to formal solicitations.
