The Purchasing Department is accountable for the procurement of all goods and services for BISD. Following local, state, and federal statutes and policies, only Purchasing Department personnel are authorized to make purchase commitments for the District with a purchase order. BISD assumes no liability for and will not be responsible for the payment of goods or services without a duly authorized purchase order issued by the Brownsville Independent School District Purchasing Department. 

The mission of the Brownsville Independent School District Purchasing Department is to provide efficient and timely procurement services, that maximize the District's resources and promotes its instruction and professional services programs and where all children come first.

Procurement Award Board Meetings have been scheduled to award bids on a quarterly basis. They are as follows: February (1st Quarter); May (2nd Quarter) ; August (3rd Quarter); November (4th Quarter).
Dear Vendor: I would like to welcome you to the Brownsville Independent School District Purchasing Department. Thank you for your desire to do business with BISD.

Purchasing processes over 26,000 purchase orders in a year and 200 formal (advertised) competitive procurement offers in a year. These competitive procurement offers are normally advertised on Sundays in The Brownsville Herald. These competitive procurement offers are also posted on the website.
