Doing Business with IPS

The Central Procurement Department, as part of the Finance Division, is responsible for ensuring all district purchases and contracts with the vendor community maximize budget dollars, comply with district policies, procedures & state purchasing laws, and meet the needs of the district in order to best serve our students. All purchases and contracts over $5,000 have oversight and are coordinated with the Central Procurement Team.

Potential Vendors

Vendors interested in doing business with the district should register on the Indigo K12 Procurement Portal. The district intends to notify registered vendors of opportunities by posting formal solicitations as well as accept electronic bid responses in accordance with applicable state procurement laws utilizing this K12 community platform. This will be the primary method of communication for potential vendors about current and upcoming solicitation opportunities. All general inquiries can be sent to purchasing@buywithindigo.com.

Current Vendors

Vendors holding a current IPS contract or purchase order can track and manage your vendor account activity with the district Vendor Self Service (VSS). This includes, but is not limited to, submitting invoices, viewing active contract and purchase orders, and updating key profile information, such as bank accounts, with the district.
