For the first-time ever, HISD’s Procurement Services team has received the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations with Recognized status.

“The Award of Merit is a great validation on how our procurement team is achieving the vision of ‘the premier K12 procurement platform in the nation’,” shared HISD Procurement Officer Rick Gay.

This award is provided to school districts and education service centers statewide that are committed to following best practices in the acquisition of goods and services. More importantly, the award also reflects the district’s commitment to financial responsibility.

“This shows that HISD’s Procurement Services is dedicated to working hard every day to improve the organization’s processes and procedures related to purchasing,” added Gay. “Thank you to everyone for their dedication and professionalism that has resulted in our team receiving statewide recognition.”

To determine the recipients of the award, TASBO reviews various procedures and practices including: organization, policies and procedures, contract operations, staff training and certification, use of technology, communication and management of co-operative programs, and applicable p-card systems and warehousing.
