Purchasing and Contracts Overview

  • The main purpose of the Central Purchasing Department is to obtain the best quality services and materials in the most cost-effective manner for Union County Public Schools.
    Materials purchased include office supplies, computers and furniture, which benefit all UCPS staff. 
    Services include waste management, printing and uniform rentals. Waste management involves trash pickup at all school locations. Printing services involve working with print companies for commercial print jobs. Uniforms are rented for transportation, facilities and custodial services. 
    Purchasing works in conjunction with Facilities personnel on any new construction of UCPS properties. Proposals are sent to prospective contractors for bids by the department.
