Procurement & Logistics
Under the Business Services Division, the Department of Procurement and Logistics is dedicated to providing our school sites and administration with a high level of customer service while upholding business practices to the standards set forth by local, state and federal mandates. Our department is proud of its continuous effort to provide a friendly, customer service-oriented environment. Our ultimate goal is to ensure we meet the needs of the District’s student population through the procurement of goods and services that will assist them in achieving their educational goals while at MUSD.
It is our responsibility to ensure that we meet the District's organizational goals; therefore, we strive daily to accomplish this by:
- Being Client-focused and service-oriented
- Maximizing fiscal resources
- Building positive relations with all school and community stakeholders
- Upholding sound business practices that both meet and exceed all state agencies regulations, as well as local, state and federal mandates
- Optimizing the use of our facilities
The department, commonly referred to as “the warehouse”, is housed in a 40,000 square foot warehouse located approximately 1 mile south of the District office and is composed of two sections: the Procurement Section and the Logistics Section with a combined staff of 21 full-time, classified employees.
Procurement is responsible for the acquisition of goods and services. Additionally, this section reviews professional service agreements to ensure the District is compliant with local, state and federal laws. Day-to-day operations include processing of requisitions and purchase orders, research of customer and vendor inquiries and product and price analysis
The Logistics section is responsible for day-to-day warehouse operations including receiving, delivery of goods to end users, tagging of fixed assets, warehouse stock inventory management, liquidation of surplus equipment, inter-office mail delivery and U.S. mail processing. Additional services include delivery of meals to various parks and other locations in the District under the District's Nutrition Services Meals Programs. Logistics also houses the District’s dry-goods and frozen foods inventory that supplies all cafeterias throughout the District. Overall, the combined value of stock, dry-goods and frozen inventory managed by Logistics is estimated to be valued at approximately $1.1 million.
We welcome vendors to visit our District; it is recommended that vendors make contact with our sites via the Procurement section during its regular business hours (7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., Monday thru Friday). Vendors interested in being placed on the Vendor Bid List should submit their request in writing along with company background and price structure via fax or U.S. mail to the attention of the Sourcing and Contracting Manager.
