Achievement of Excellence in Procurement Award

“The Office of Procurement Services was recently awarded the 2014 Achievement of Excellence in Procurement® Award for the first time.  Public and non-profit organizations earn the award by obtaining a high application score based on standardized criteria.  The judging criteria are designed to measure innovation, professionalism, e-procurement, productivity, and leadership attributes of the procurement function.

Fairfax County Public Schools is one of only eight government agencies in Virginia and one of only 23 school districts in the United States to receive the award.”

Mission

The mission of the Office of Procurement Services is to demonstrate good stewardship and best practices in the purchase of goods and services through fair competitive processes in accordance with applicable regulations; provide timely distribution; offer high quality customer service; and develop and implement innovative technological solutions to improve procurement processes and division wide services.

Purchasing Support manages procurement activities for the school division, enabling schools, centers, and offices to quickly locate necessary products and services in a timely manner and at competitive prices. This area supports schools, centers, and offices by acquiring instructional supplies, textbooks, furniture, equipment, and related services; establishes contracts through the competitive and noncompetitive process and through cooperative agreements with national consortiums; audits accountable equipment throughout the school division; and maintains FCPS equipment guidelines for equipping new or renovated schools with the necessary equipment and furniture.

Warehouse Operations is primarily responsible for warehousing and distributing a wide variety of products in support of instructional and support functions for the entire school division. It provides a myriad of ancillary services which include a ready inventory of basic supplies for instructional, administrative, and custodial services; assembly and distribution of the Instructional Program Service Center science kits; management of the internal mail services and the central oversight of outgoing U.S. Mail; redistribution of surplus equipment and furniture; removal and disposal of obsolete equipment and furnishings; and support of special projects throughout the school system.
