The Purchasing Office establishes and administers district-wide contracts for goods and services; reviews purchase requests for compliance with state laws, board policy, and administrative regulations; issues purchase orders for equipment and services requested by schools and departments; acts as supplier liaison; and provides guidance and training related to purchasing issues.
The SAISD Purchasing Department maintains a web site for current bid opportunities and bid tabulations. Information concerning the types of products and projects SAISD bids out can be found on this web site. At times throughout the year, verbal bids may be requested for items with an aggregate value usually less than $25,000. Vendors are selected for verbal bids based on response to previous bids and from information received on the Vendor Registration Form found on this web site. Request for verbal bids may not appear on our web site.
Vendors may sign up to participate in bids at any time during the year by completing the Vendor Registration Form below. This vendor registration does not guarantee anyone approved vendor status but the list will be utilized in soliciting responses to future bids.
Vendors may complete the above form and submit it to the Director of Purchasing by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org), fax (325-947-3837), or by mail (Richard Rigdon, Director of Purchasing, 1621 University, San Angelo, TX 76904).
Construction projects will require contractors to provide payment, performance, and bid bonds as well as proof of General Liability, Employer’s Liability, Commercial Automobile Liability, Property Damage coverage, Builder’s Risk and Worker’s Compensation insurance.

It is the responsibility of the SAISD staff to ensure purchases are being made from vendors that have been awarded the contracts through the competitive bid/proposal process. The following document outlines SAISD's purchase and bid approval process.
This list is intended to give campuses and departments more options and flexibility in finding the best value when purchasing needed items. San Angelo ISD belongs to the BuyBoard, as well as a dozen other purchasing cooperatives. Any of which can be used to make legal purchases with district funds or activity account moneys. Since each purchasing cooperative has their own procedures and guidelines the purchasing department is here to assist you in preparing requisitions for these vendors.
