How to do business with San Angelo ISD

The SAISD Purchasing Department maintains a web site for current bid opportunities and bid tabulations. Information concerning the types of products and projects SAISD bids out can be found on this web site. At times throughout the year, verbal bids may be requested for items with an aggregate value usually less than $25,000. Vendors are selected for verbal bids based on response to previous bids and from information received on the Vendor Registration Form found on this web site. Request for verbal bids may not appear on our web site.

Vendors may sign up to participate in bids at any time during the year by completing the Vendor Registration Form below. This vendor registration does not guarantee anyone approved vendor status but the list will be utilized in soliciting responses to future bids.

Vendor Registration Form

Vendors may complete the above form and submit it to the Director of Purchasing by e-mail (richard.rigdon@saisd.org), fax (325-947-3837), or by mail (Richard Rigdon, Director of Purchasing, 1621 University, San Angelo, TX 76904).

Construction projects will require contractors to provide payment, performance, and bid bonds as well as proof of General Liability, Employer’s Liability, Commercial Automobile Liability, Property Damage coverage, Builder’s Risk and Worker’s Compensation insurance.

Thank you for your interest in San Angelo ISD. If we can assist you in any way, please contact us by any of the methods above or by phone at 325-947-3838 x759.

Below is a list of BuyBoard vendors. This vendor list is for use when a suitable vendor cannot be located through the normal SAISD Purchasing Department procedures. This list is not meant to be used to bypass any regular purchasing procedures. If a vendor cannot be found on the regular bid lists and they appear on the BuyBoard, please contact the Purchasing Department at 325-947-3838 x759 for ordering procedures. The BuyBoard purchasing procedures follow different guidelines and we will be glad to assist you in preparing requisitions for these vendors.
