Doing Business with ECISD

  • Ector County ISD (ECISD) Purchasing Department is here to serve students, faculty, and staff by faithfully utilizing resources in accordance with applicable statues and District policies and procedures.  We aim for excellence in all that we do for the betterment of the school district and our community.  We are committed to working with our supplier community.  Our goal is to select suppliers that bring the best value to our District.

    The purchasing department is required to purchase under specific guidelines established at the federal, state and local level.  Laws and regulations related to procurement can be found in, but not limited to, Texas Education Code Chapter 44, §44.031, Texas Government Codes §2254 and §2269, State Statutes, Federal Regulations, and Local Policy CH (Legal and Local) and Procedures. 

    ECISD requires all vendors to have an approved procurement instrument (i.e. purchase order, term contract, agreement, etc.) in place prior to providing goods or services.  Entering into contracts verbally or without appropriate authorization is prohibited and a violation of state law.  Any vendor who delivers services or goods to ECISD without a proper contract is doing so entirely at their own risk.  ECISD does not pay for goods or services that were provided without the benefit of a properly executed procurement contract.  The district purchasing policy CH (Local) states "All purchase commitments shall be made by the Superintendent or designee in accordance with administrative procedures, including the District’s purchasing procedures; persons making unauthorized purchases shall assume full responsibility for all such debts."
