School Districts – Model School District Procurement Code

2011 Model School District Procurement Code

Pursuant to Section 11-35-70 and Regulation 19-445.3000, the Procurement Services Division has prepared a Model School District Procurement Code. While this Model was developed for Districts subject to Section 11-35-70, any school district may adopt the model code. For a comprehensive Index of the Consolidated Procurement Code and Regulations, on which this Model is based, see this site's Procurement Law page.

Instructions for Submission & Form Letters

In conjunction with the Model, Procurement Services has prepared instructions regarding how to submit a draft for approval and a form letter to use when submitting a draft, both of which are attached below.

Documents in Editable Format / Track Changes (MSWord)

In order to properly review a proposed school district code, Procurement Services must received documentation from the school district that shows exactly how the district's code compares to state law. As explained in the Instructions for Submitting a District Code & Regulations for Review, a District may elect to do this by submitting its proposed code as a set of modifications to the 2011 Model School District Procurement Code. This approach requires that you begin with an editable version of the model code. Attached is a version in MSWord format. To protect the integrity of this document, we have password protected the document such that all changes will be shown with underlining and strike through. Please do not disable this function.

As explained in the Instructions for Submitting a District Code & Regulations for Review, a District may also elect to submit its proposed code as a set of modifications to the latest version of the Consolidated Procurement Code and the associated regulations. For your convenience, Procurement Services has combined the statutes and regulations into one Microsoft Word document and posted it here.

Both of these documents are formatted for Microsoft Word 2003. If you use a subsequent version of this program, such as MSWord 2007, please save the file as a Word 2003 version before submission. 

Note: Please note that both these documents have been password protected. Specifically, they have been set to track all changes you make to the document. Deletions will be shown as stricken text. Additions will be shown as underlined text. This makes your job easier and allows Procurement Services to readily track your changes. Please do not substantially reorder the contents. If you relocate significant text, please make notes regarding where the text has been moved.
