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.
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.
