Other Procurement Procedures
 

Other Procurement Procedures Utilized
QUOTES (Written and Verbal): Written and/or verbal quotes may be utilized for categories that will not reach the Texas Education Code 44.031 guidelines.  Quotes may also be requested from a roster of awarded vendors of same/similar goods or services.

RFQ (Request for Qualifications) and RFP (Request for Proposals)
These processes are primarily utilized for the procurement of goods and services that may require specialized and/or particular needs. (i.e. financial consultant technology programmer or consultant, etc.)

Tax Exemption
The Richardson Independent School District is tax-exempt on the basis that it is a governmental entity – school district.

Educational Purchasing Cooperative of North Texas (EPCNT)
Approximately 63 governmental entities have formed, through an inter-local agreement, the Educational Purchasing Cooperative of North Texas (EPCNT; http://www.epcnt.com/ ). Bids and proposals by any member or participant entity are made available to all other entities if vendor approval is indicated on bid response. If approved, member/participant entities will be eligible, but not obligated, to purchase goods and services under the contract awarded as a result of the solicitation. All purchases by member or participant entities other than Richardson ISD will be billed directly to that entity and paid by that entity. Richardson ISD will not be responsible for another entity's debt. Each entity will order their specific goods and services as needed.

Discrimination
Vendors shall not discriminate against any employee or applicant for employment because of race, religion, color, sex or national origin. A responder must certify that their company complies with Executive Order 11246, entitled Equal Employment Opportunity, as amended by Executive Order 11375 and as supplemented in Department of Labor Regulations.

Amusement Ride (bounce house, inflatables, etc.)
The Richardson ISD Purchasing Department provides a list of vendors that shall be used for activities that involve amusement ride (bounce house, inflatables, etc.) type activities. All school funded or PTA requests for these activities shall only use the vendors made available on the Approved Bid Vendor Report (ABVR).

The vendors listed on the ABVR are the only vendors that RISD has confirmed meet State insurance and inspection requirements. School principals shall insure that no unapproved amusement ride vendor will be used on district property. While the district prefers, due to the risk involved, that these activities not be used, it is understood that some school activities involve these types of activities.
