Our Services

The Construction Purchasing Department provides all of the contractual services required for major School District construction projects, including new construction, re-construction, modifications and modernizations when the estimated project cost is $300,000 or more.  Those services include development of all solicitations, organization and supervision of the selection process, vendor qualification, contract negotiations and preparation of the contract for all construction occurring in the School District of Palm Beach County.

Other services include ensuring all documents, processes and recommended awards are in accord with all applicable State of Florida, Statutes, Regulations and School Board Policies, from the initial advertisement for Request for Proposals through the Notice to Proceed to the selected contractor.

During this process, the Construction Purchasing Department schedules and coordinates activities in the selection and contracting process with other Departments, including but not limited to Facilities Management, Building Code Services and Office of Diversity in Business Practices.
