The Mesquite ISD Purchasing Department provides excellence by establishing policies and procedures for purchasing products and services at the best value and in a manner consistent with local, state, and federal ordinances, regulations, Board policies, and sound ethical business practices.

Doing Business with Mesquite ISD

Mesquite ISD Purchasing currently uses an e-bidding process. All vendors must register as a supplier within IonWave to be able to receive notifications of proposals. Registration does not automatically make you or your company an approved vendor of Mesquite ISD. When a bid opportunity becomes available for your procurement commodity, you will be notified by the purchasing department. If you choose to participate in the bidding process through IonWave, your bid/proposal must be selected by an evaluation committee and approved by the MISD Board of Trustees. It will be the sole responsibility of each vendor to maintain and keep their company's information on the district's e-bidding site current. In the event of a contact person's name, address or phone change, it will be necessary for the vendor to edit their company's information.

Acceptance of orders verbally or otherwise without an authorized purchase order or district credit card is done at the risk of non-payment.
