HSD File: DJ

The acquisition of supplies, equipment, and services will be centralized in the business office,
which functions under the supervision of the Superintendent, and through whose office all
purchasing transactions are conducted.

The Board assigns the Superintendent and/or designee the responsibility for the quality and
quantity of purchases made. The prime guidelines governing this responsibility are that all
purchases fall within the framework of budgetary limitations and that they be consistent with the
approved educational goals and programs of the district.

The Superintendent and/or designee will be solely responsible for the final approval of all
purchases. No purchase is final until the purchase order has been authorized by the
Superintendent of Schools.

Adopted: December 21, 1999
