Purchasing Rules

Formal Procurements:

Arizona Revised Statutes 15-213 authorized the State Board of Education to submit rules to the Auditor General.  The Arizona School District Procurement rules apply to purchases above the bid threshold (currently $100,000.00)


Written Quote Requirements:

The Auditor General is responsible for establishing rules for purchasing below the bid threshold and other general procurement matters.  These rules for purchasing below the bid threshold are found in the Uniform System of Financial Records (USFR) within Section VI.G. "Expenditures" under "Procurement."

We have provided via the links below, the current Arizona rules regarding procurement in school districts.  A school district may adopt stronger or more restrictive language, but cannot adopt polices which dilute this code.
