4442 – Local Purchasing


It shall be the policy of the Grand Island Public Schools to purchase locally, provid­ed goods of equal quality and competitive prices are available from local suppliers. The Board of Education may enter into contracts not to exceed seven years for the provision of services, such as, utility services, refuse disposal, transportation services, maintenance services, financial services, insurance, security services, instruction materials, supplies, and equipment and for collective-bargaining agreements with employee groups. This does not permit multiyear contracts with individual school district employees. Service contracts can be offered with a request for qualifications without going through a bidding process.

Personnel responsible for purchasing in the district, however, should not feel bound to purchase any item locally that can be secured at a savings to this school district from outside sources, nor shall they feel bound to purchase locally unless adequate service and delivery can be given by the local supplier.
