    Purchases from vendors that operate on a cash basis (do not accept purchase orders) will not be allowed.  To comply with purchasing laws, HISD uses several cooperative and Interlocal agreements as allowed under the law.  Region VII Purchasing Cooperative is available for most purchases; however, the district participates in several cooperative purchasing programs (see below). The vendor list is continuously updated as new bids are awarded.   All purchases must use awarded vendors in compliance with both state and federal purchasing statutes, particularly EDGAR.  Some exceptions can be made for purchases using local funds for Best Value, Sole Source and other exceptions.
