Who We Are

Spring Independent School District covers fifty-seven square miles in North Harris County, Texas. The District has twenty-six elementary schools, seven middle schools and three high schools. Some 4,000 plus staff members work to provide an education program from pre-kindergarten through grade twelve to over 36,000 students.

The Law

The District is a political subdivision of the State of Texas. It operates under specific legal requirements for the acquisition of goods and services. You can view the District’s purchasing policy and procedures manual on the Supply Chain Services web page. Spring ISD is exempt from most state and local taxes. Tax-exempt forms will be supplied upon request by the Purchasing Department.

District Purchasing Philosophy

We encourage the control of expenditures at the campus and department level. Our focus is on educating requisitioners within campus and administrative departments so they can make most purchases directly. By using a comprehensive training program, district wide contracts, and a redundant communication system, we give our purchasers the confidence and support they need to be successful. Although oversight of the purchasing process is still centralized, most purchasing decisions are site-based.

Method of Contracting

All contracts exceeding $50,000 in value are submitted to competitive price review through the use of requests for sealed bids or sealed proposals. For construction projects, the Board of Trustees has selected the use of competitive sealed proposals as the only method to receive competitive prices from competing vendors. Public openings for bids and proposals are held at the Supply Chain Services Department Conference Room in the Distribution Center located at 15330 Kuykendahl Road, Houston, Texas 77090. Construction projects, public openings are held at 341 E. Richey Rd., Houston, TX 77073.

For purchases of goods between $5,000 and $50,000, the Purchasing Department relies on quotations taken from several vendors prior to awarding a contract. Written (faxed or email) quotations are primarily used. A partial list of active contracts may be viewed at our Contract Reporter.

Notification List

Vendors interested in responding to Bids / RFPs are asked to contact Supply Chain Services at 281-891-6465. We will provide you with instructions regarding registering as a vendor on our E-Sourcing platform. Once registered, you will be notified when a posting is made relating to the product or service you sell.

Board Meetings

All contracts based on bids or proposals are presented to the Board of Trustees prior to the issuance of a contract by the Purchasing Department. Meetings of the Board of Trustees are normally held on the second Tuesday of each month in the Board Room of the Gordon M. Anderson Leadership Center at 16717 Ella Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77090. Those interested in attending these meetings should contact the District to verify the place and time of a specific meeting.

Cooperative Purchasing Affiliation

The District is affiliated with the Texas General Services Commission, the Texas Cooperative Purchasing Network (Region IV), the Texas Local Government Statewide Purchasing Cooperative (TASB), The Harris County Department of Education Purchasing Cooperative, the Houston-Galveston Area Council of Governments Purchasing Cooperative and U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance.

Spring ISD gives preference to the use of cooperative or state contracts where goods and services can be purchased at competitive prices. This is done to reduce administrative costs.
