Dysart Purchasing & Procurement Information


The Purchasing staff of the Dysart Unified School District processes approximately 8,000 purchase orders each school year. We also prepare approximately 140 Invitation for Bid (IFB)/Request for Proposals (RFP) and quotations.  

Dysart is committed to spending taxpayers' dollars in the most efficient and effective manner. This does not always mean that we will accept a low bid. We carefully scrutinize products and services to insure the very best use of constituent funds, while encouraging open and fair vendor competition. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
