Dysart Purchasing & Procurement Information


The Purchasing staff of the Dysart Unified School District processes approximately 7,000 purchase orders each school year. We also prepare approximately 50 Invitation for Bid (IFB)/Request for Proposals (RFP) and quotations annually.  

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.

The District encourages participation by all businesses in our solicitation process, including but not limited to: local businesses, small businesses, minority-owned firms, and women’s business enterprises. 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Open solicitations are available for review at
