Welcome, Vendors!

  • Interested in doing business with Glendale Elementary School District?

    Situated in the heart of historic Glendale, Arizona, the Glendale Elementary School District proudly serves almost 10,000 students in 15 campuses with over 1,400 employees.  We purchase an estimated $33 million worth of goods, services, materials and supplies each year.  Our Purchasing Department assists schools, departments and vendors navigate the local, state and federal rules of procurement while acquiring the highest quality goods and services at the lowest possible cost to taxpayers.  The ultimate goal is to ensure students have all that is necessary to succeed in their education.

    The Purchasing Department insists on fair competition and ethical standards to provide vendors with an opportunity to offer their products and services to the District.  We look forward to working with you in the near future.  

    GESD is proud to belong to many cooperative purchasing groups.  We participate in Greater Phoenix Purchasing Consortium of School (GPPCS), Arizona State Procurement Office (ProcureAZ), Mohave Educational Services Cooperative (MESC), Strategic Alliance for Volume Expenditures (SAVE), Arizona Department of Education Contracts, OMNIA (TCPN)/National IPA/US Communities, and 1GPA.

    To be notified of any solicitations please register at AzPurchasing. org.   We encourage all vendors to read the Purchase Order Terms and Conditions annually by clicking on the Vendor Forms link to the left.   For the convenience of our vendors, we have posted the brochure "Doing Business with Public Entities in Arizona, a Vendor Guide to Understanding Arizona Procurement Practices" as an instructional tool for working with a School District, also located in Vendor Forms.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact a member of our purchasing staff listed to the right.
