Welcome to the CISD Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department is responsible for the procurement of supplies, materials, equipment, and services for Cleveland Independent School District.  We are committed to ensuring that all State and Federal statutes and District policies are strictly adhered to.  In an effort to reduce administrative costs, the District gives preference to the use of cooperative or state contracts where goods and services can be purchased at competitive prices.  Cleveland ISD assumes no liability for payment of obligations made outside of an official District issued Purchase Order. 


Vendor Resources

Doing Business with Cleveland ISD

All contracts for the purchase of goods and services, except contracts for the purchase of produce or vehicle fuel, valued at $50,000 or more in the aggregate for each 12-month period shall be made by a method that provides the best value to the District, in accordance with Texas Education Code 44.031.  Vendors interested in doing business with Cleveland ISD are encouraged to complete and submit the Vendor Packet.  The completed Vendor Packet must be returned to the attention of Ginger Deck via fax at 281-592-8283 or email at  Submittal of the Vendor Packet does not make you or your company an awarded, authorized, approved, or contracted vendor. 

Bid Opportunities

Most purchases are made from vendors who have been awarded bids through the bidding process managed by the Cleveland ISD Purchasing Department, as well as with vendors that have been awarded a contract through our Co-Op affiliations.  To begin the process of becoming an awarded vendor with Cleveland ISD, please complete and submit the Vendor Packet.  This does not make you an awarded vendor.  It will place you on the notification list for upcoming solicitations.  You must still respond to a solicitation and be awarded a contract by the CISD Board of Trustees.
