Welcome to the Purchasing and Property Management Department web site for Gwinnett County Public Schools. These electronic pages will provide helpful information about the School District purchasing process.
The Mission of the Purchasing and Property Management Department is to provide support to our local schools and central office staff in the strategic procurement of specialized products and services in support of student learning. This is accomplished through the issuance of phone quotes, written bids, request for proposals, State of Georgia contracts and other local and federal agency contracts. The Purchasing Office will utilize the most expeditious and cost-effective procurement methods to secure required products and services and maximum value for each dollar spent. All purchases are based on sound business practices as established by board approved policies and the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing Standards. The Property Management Office maintains an accurate inventory of our Capital assets.
All purchases, whether for products or services, must be supported by an official GCPS purchase order with valid purchase order number or GCPS authorized Visa purchasing card . The Gwinnett County Board of Education will not be bound by any unauthorized purchases.
