Welcome to the Purchasing Department Page

The Purchasing Department is in charge of overseeing District purchases ranging from classroom supplies to buses.  In order to get the best prices and service, the District uses a variety of bidding options from bidding items at the District level, to cooperatives at the State and local level, and consortiums with other districts.  Some of the cooperatives are listed below.

Options for buying supplies for the District

If you need to buy items for your building or department, several options are already in place for you to use.

HVS On-line catalog - offers ease of ordering items for classroom and office supplies (School Specialty and Staples) and for custodial supplies (Allied Eagle, Arnold Sales, JEM, Supply Den).

Amazon - the District has a corporate account to order items on-line, with cooperative pricing, for items not available through the on-line catalog

All buildings and departments have at least one person that already has access to the HVS on-line catalog and Amazon and can order items for their staff.  Contact your building/department administrative assistant for more information.

Lowes - the District has a corporate account allowing you to purchase items from the store, tax-free. Contact the Maintenance & Operations Department for information on purchasing items from Lowes

The Purchasing Department also has on-line accounts set up with Best Buy, Office Depot/Max, and Staples Advantage for those items not available through the other options. 

Contact Purchasing for more information on using the above options.
