    GENERAL INFORMATION FOR VENDORS

    In order to do business with Hallsville ISD, a Vendor Packet will need to be completed.

    The Vendor Packet includes (documents found below):

    • A vendor application
    • Completing a W-9 (filled out completely and properly)
    • Conflict of Interest Questionnaire
    • Felony Conviction Form and Criminal History Verification (if applicable)
    • Certificate of Insurance (with HISD as additional insured, if applicable)

    Please send the completed vendor packet to your contact in the district or Kathy Bradford at kbradford@hisd.com. 

     Vendors

    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.
