• Doing Business with PPS

    Purchasing & Contracting performs a wide variety of competitive solicitations on behalf of the District's departments and schools. Purchases above $250,000 for goods and services, above $100,000 for construction, or above $250,000 for 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.
