Purchasing Department

Mission:
Procurement transactions will be conducted utilizing best business practices in accordance with the Board of Education policy, state, and federal regulations. Materials, equipment and services will be purchased based on the best possible cost, quality and delivery from vendors participating in our competitive procurement process with sensitivity to the desire of the Board to deal with local businesses when possible.

Responsibility:
The Superintendent of schools (the Superintendent) or designee is authorized to purchase on behalf of the Board of Education of Cecil County (the Board) when formal bidding procedures are not required by law, and when budget appropriations are adequate to cover such obligations. The Assistant in Purchasing, as the primary designee of the Superintendent, is responsible for administering this regulation.

All contractual agreements between the Board and any supplier must be made by formal purchase order, agreement, or contract specifying the terms and conditions and signed by the Superintendent or designee and the corporate official of the supplier.
