I would like to express the appreciation that Savannah-Chatham County Public School System has for each one of our vendors. Your service to us is highly valued, but at this time, due to our school sites being closed by order of the Governor because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we must unfortunately suspend all pending deliveries and postpone processing of all purchase orders until further notice. Please hold all deliveries and do not process any purchase orders in your possession or that will be received by you in the next few days until the school district has returned to full operation.
The Purchasing Department
The Purchasing Department is a service-oriented branch of the Division of Finance for Savannah-Chatham County Public School System. The main function of Purchasing is to procure required goods and services that exceed a specified dollar value, at the best combination of quality and lowest net cost to the school district.
Purchasing also serves as a resource for obtaining information and estimates on goods and/or services that do not fall within the normal day-to-day operations of the school district. The Purchasing Department maintains professional standards in accordance with the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP), a national membership based non-profit corporation providing support and continuing education to professionals in the public sector purchasing profession.
