Bidded Commodities

  • Texas Education Code 44.031 states that any commodity that the district (as a whole) spends in excess of $50,000 per year must be formally bid. Those purchases must be made by the Purchasing Department completing the bid process or by being a member of a cooperative purchasing alliance. 

    In order to build an approved bidded vendor list, the NCISD Purchasing Department compiles information obtained from the cooperatives in conjunction with the local bids the District puts out.
