Procurement Management Services


There are many opportunities for vendors, contractors, and consultants to do business with Miami-Dade County Public Schools. As one of the largest businesses in Florida, the District purchases all types of supplies, materials, commodities, and services; as well as constructing and maintaining a large variety of facilities. The School Board is committed to promoting and developing business relationships with a wide variety of businesses and ensuring that minority and women owned businesses as well as eligible local businesses have the chance to compete for a fair share of these opportunities. These opportunities are advertised in the print media, and publicized here on this web site. Interested parties should submit a completed Vendor Application Form (rev.09-14) and frequently visit our Bid Solicitation Portal to stay current with our business needs.

  • Adhering to ethical purchasing policies and principles;
  • Maintaining open and fair competition;
  • Maintaining fair and clear purchase and bid specifications;
  • Encouraging testing or demonstration of materials and products which may be of value to the School Board;
