Purchasing and Vendor Registration


Welcome to the Morgan Hill Unified School District Purchasing Department.  Our primary function is to provide an efficient centralized service to all schools and departments in the procurement and delivery of supplies, services and equipment.  Our objective is to procure goods and services at the most competitive prices while complying with federal and state laws. This site provides information on potential vendor registration, policies and procedures, and other general information. For additional information, questions or comments, please contact Dianne Dalton in our Purchasing Department at 408-201-6056 or daltond@mhusd.org.

Purchasing Policies and Procedures

The Morgan Hill Unified School District Board of Education has adopted a centralized purchasing system; whereby, the District uses a competitive process in order to obtain the best combination of price, quality, service, and delivery.  The Purchasing Department conducts all purchasing transactions for the District. Purchases made in the name of the District without an authorized purchase order shall be considered an obligation of the person making the purchase and not an obligation of the District. The District actively participates in several cooperative purchasing programs to obtain effective and low cost products and services.  The combined volume of partners in the cooperative creates significant discounts.  In addition, participating in a cooperative purchasing program increases efficiency by reducing time spent to source, award and administer contracts.
