The Purchasing Department of the Wissahickon School District is the central purchasing agency for the school district. The purchasing responsibility goes beyond the single act of making a purchase. It involves planning and scheduling, policy decision, research and selection, in the area of materials and sources of supply. It also involves follow-up to ensure proper delivery, and inspection as to quantity and quality before acceptance. The fundamental objectives of our purchasing program may be summarized as follows:

Program Support — Maintain the educational program at the highest level possible by, providing the maximum expenditure value for a fixed budget appropriation.
Timing — Maintain continuity of supply in support of the educational program.
Cost — Procure material at the lowest cost consistent with quality and service required.
Quality — Maintain standards of quality in materials, based upon suitability before use.
Usefulness — Avoidance of duplication, waste, and obsolescence.
