Welcome to the Purchasing Department. As a service oriented member of the Business Services Team, Purchasing uses skills, dedication, and professionalism to balance administrative requirements and academic interests. The Governing Board of the Morongo Unified School District has adopted a centralized purchasing concept, whereby the District will maintain an actively competitive attitude to obtain the best combination of product quality, price, and delivery. The Governing Board has authorized the Director of Purchasing to represent the District's interests. Research, negotiation, contracting, verification and delivery are some of the services made possible by the skills and knowledge within the Purchasing Department. These services enable the administrators, teachers, and department managers to devote more valuable time to providing students with optimum educational experiences. The goal of the Purchasing Department is to accomplish this through a cooperative effort between the department and its suppliers. The Morongo Unified School District purchasing philosophy is to maintain professional relationships with all vendors and to be receptive to new ideas.
The Purchasing Department orders all goods, materials and equipment for the District. It is our goal to get the product in the hands of the teachers and students in a timely manner, making for the optimum educational experience for all students. We view the students and staff in the District as our customers, and we look for ways to provide our customers with a quality product, at a reasonable price, in a timely and expeditious manner.
The Purchasing Department consists of one full-time Director position, and one full-time Purchasing and Inventory Control Specialist position. The Warehouse which is under the Director of Purchasing consists of, one full-time Lead Warehouse position, three full-time Warehouse Delivery positions, one of which is dedicated to Nutritional Services.
It is the goal of both departments to provide the student and staff population of the Morongo Unified School District with the best and most efficient service level available. We continually look for new and inventive ways to provide a quality service and will continue to do so in the future.
