Procurement and Strategic Sourcing

WELCOME!

The Purchasing Department is responsible for commodities construction, renovations materials and projects for Lafourche Parish School District locations. Our purchases total approximately $165 million per year and include capital equipment, chemicals, furnishings, computer equipment and supplies, and a multitude of maintenance, operating, and repair items, as well as contracted services.

How We Buy

The School Board operates in compliance with the Public Procurement Laws of Louisiana, and in accordance with regulations developed by the Superintendent, to ensure that the funds provided to the Board of Education for materials, supplies, equipment and services are expended and handled the most effectively and prudently.

All purchases in excess of $30,000 must be competitively bid. Purchases under the amount are processed on a competitive basis either by a written or a verbal request for quotation or through State Contracts. We require a prompt response to these requests in order to process them quickly and efficiently.

Our Objective

Like all professional purchasing departments, our main objective is to procure the right product/service, for the right price and quality, at the right time. We have taken this a step beyond. We ensure an open, equitable and competitive bidding process which involves the active solicitation of minority businesses.

Our Code of Ethics

We subscribe and adhere to the Code of Ethics of the National Institution of Government Procurement. At all times we foster fair, ethical and legal trade practices.

Our Goal

While we have made appreciable advances in our local minority and women-owned vendor activity, we constantly strive to improve. With your help, we shall continue to increase our expenditures with these viable and qualified sources of supply.
