Leon County School District Purchasing Department and DemandStar by OnviaTM
DemandStar.Com, Inc., provides new technologies and opportunities to government and businesses and supplies current information to potential contractors, consultants, and other types of vendors who subscribe for their services.
The Leon County School District's needs are diverse and require a broad range of goods and services to serve the educational requirements of our students. The District is committed to a fair and competitive procurement process that requires doing business with a variety of vendors. The responsibility for the acquisition of quality goods and services is vested in the District's purchasing department.
The District has contracted with DemandStar.Com, Inc. to maintain a vendor database for maintenance of an automated vendor list. This list categorizes each vendor by commodity codes for the specific goods or services offered by the vendor. Vendors who subscribe to the vendor list are notified by fax or e-mail whenever a formal sealed bid or request for proposal has been issued for a commodity or service offered by the vendor. Vendors may have their firm placed on the vendor list by contacting DemandStar.Com, Inc. for details about the $30.00 per year subscription. The application requires general information about the firm and lists the commodities and services you wish to sell to the School District.
