NO! Providing goods or services requires an approved Tacoma School District Purchase Order.
In order to do business with the Tacoma School District, you must obtain an approved purchase order or Tacoma School District procurement card (PCard) Visa card, prior to providing any goods or services. This has been Board of Directors policy for many years, and is completely consistent with proper business practices.
If you are presently providing goods or services (or have done so in the recent past) without an approved purchase order or authorized PCard transaction, you must contact the Purchasing Department at 253- 571-3380 immediately. We will review your situation and determine if payment can be made, and, if so, what steps are needed by you.
