The purchasing department is under the umbrella of Business Services. The purchasing department is comprised of the purchasing, warehouse, and text books functions. Purchasing is located in the business office at the administration building, 1050 Williams Street, Rockwall, Texas, 75087. The warehouse which includes textbooks is located at 1052 Williams Street (behind the admin building.)
Purchasing is responsible for acquiring operational supplies, school supplies, and services for the Rockwall ISD. The warehouse receives the products and transports them from the warehouse to the user. The warehouse also maintains a small inventory of time sensitive or frequently used products.
School districts are governed by the Texas Education Code for purchasing supplies and services. This code outlines the bid procedures to be followed for various dollar thresholds of purchases. The Texas Legislature requires school districts to competitively bid supplies/services for which there is an annual requirement of $50,000 or more.
