Tulsa Public Schools, or Independent School District Number One of Tulsa County, Oklahoma, is the largest school district in northeastern Oklahoma. As one of the largest employers in the Tulsa County, the District contributes significantly to the economic base of the area, employing approximately 5,000 full-time and 850 part-time employees. OVERVIEW: The Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of all goods and services in conformance with Oklahoma law and Board of Education Policies and Regulations. The Purchasing Department should be the first point of contact for vendors wishing to present or demonstrate products.
The Tulsa School Board delegates authority to the Director of Purchasing to issue purchase orders for the procurement of goods and services.
The Purchasing Department welcomes and encourages visits by vendors or their representatives. In order that the staff and vendors may schedule their time most productively, Buyers are generally available Monday through Thursday from 8:30-11:30 for vendor visits. Appointments may be scheduled with a Buyer at other times as is mutually convenient.
Tulsa Public Schools encourages vendors to supply line cards, catalogs, and price lists of the goods or services they provide in addition to providing the District assistance in the development and writing of specifications.
VENDOR BID LIST:
The Purchasing Department maintains a listing of all registered prospective bidders/offerors classified by commodity. To be placed on the appropriate bid list, vendors must send a written request that identifies the materials they wish to provide. All qualified bidders will be afforded equal opportunity to quote/bid and will compete on equal terms.
Each solicitation will provide the opportunity to claim preference for Oklahoma manufactured goods. Vendors are invited to propose recycled materials and must include in their response the total percentage of recycled product content as well as that of post-consumer waste if applicable. Minority and female-owned businesses are encouraged to participate. A minority business is defined as an enterprise which is at least 50% owned by minority group members (Black, Hispanic, Native American Persons, Asian/Pacific Islanders). In the case of a publicly owned business, at least 51% of the stock must be owned by minority group members.
