Bid Laws

North East Independent School District, as well as all other school districts in the State of Texas, is governed by state competitive bid law. Therefore, the majority of the purchasing process is done via competitive bids. The purpose and intent for the competitive bidding process is to help public schools obtain the best products at the lowest practical prices in the best interest of the taxpayers by stimulating competition. The mission of the Procurement & eCommerce is to facilitate the educational process by procuring goods and services, which meet District specifications, with available fiscal resources at the lowest possible cost. Therefore, North East Independent School District is committed to fair and equal competition among all vendors. In addition, state competitive bid laws do not allow favoritism to be shown to any vendor.
