Information for Vendors
The Purchasing Department office acts as a liaison between vendor sales representatives and district personnel; therefore all vendor representatives are asked to contact the Purchasing Department prior to contacting other district offices or campuses.
Vendors interested in doing business with Katy ISD are invited to forward information directly to the Purchasing Office at the address listed at the beginning of this booklet. Additionally, vendors should register with the District indicating which service area or commodity they are interested in providing to the District. An application is available on-line for this purpose at www. katyisd.org/purchasing. Vendors should down-load the application and send it along with a completed W-9 form to the Purchasing Department. These items are presently accepted by mail, hand-delivery, or fax.
Registering with the District will place you on the list of potential vendors. It does not guarantee any level of business expenditure by the District. However, when schools or departments request commodities or service, the Purchasing Department will provide them with a list of potential providers. The Purchasing Department will also use the vendor registration to develop potential bidders on those contracts required by statute to be competitively awarded.
Please note the Purchasing Department staff will be happy to meet with you to discuss where your goods or services might fit in with the District’s operations. If you would like to schedule an appointment to meet with the Director or one or the department’s Buyers, please contact the office at 281-396-6260.
