Strategic Sourcing & Contract Management


Department Mission Statement

Supporting today's learners and tomorrow's leaders by promoting open and fair competition and by securing best value services & products in accordance with the policies and procedures of the Board of Education.  


Prospective Supplier Information

  • The District does not have an “approved supplier list”. Suppliers do not fill out a supplier application to become an “approved supplier”.  The District uses Rocky Mountain Bidnet to solicit bids; suppliers are encouraged to register directly with them. There is no cost to bid, but there is a cost to be notified when a bid is posted.

  • All suppliers are required to sign a Master Services Agreement or a Master Provider Agreement. These documents contain the District's insurance requirement along with a background check verification. Please review said documents listed in the side bar.

  • No employee or close friend or family member of a District employee shall be allowed to sell to the District per Board Policy DJ-R

Current Supplier Information

  • Suppliers must contact the Strategic Sourcing Department for prior authorization before contacting or visiting any school and/or staff member per Board Policy DJGA.

  • Only authorized representatives of the Strategic Sourcing Department will issue a purchase order number, obligate the District for purchase of goods and services, and revise or cancel a purchase order per Board Policy DJ-R.

  • No purchase will be made without the proper requisitions and authorized signatures. Exception to this procedure will be made only in an extreme emergency. No “confirming” or “after-the-fact” purchase authorizations will be allowed.

Warehouse Operations

In order to ensure maximum efficiency, DCSD maintains a warehouse. This allows us to purchase certain materials in bulk or during off-season, saving District taxpayers.

Our District Supply Warehouse is located at 701 Prairie Hawk Drive, Castle Rock, CO 80104. Please contact the warehouse at warehouse_questions[at]dcsdk12[dot]org or 720-433-1224 with any questions.

Delivery Information

We accept deliveries at the warehouse between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, closed for lunch, 12:00 - 1:00 pm. Deliveries may be made at the warehouse dock doors on the south side of the building.
