Information for Vendors

Purchase Order Process

Albuquerque Public Schools wants to ensure that vendors follows the procurement processes in doing business with the School District.

  • An approved purchase order document issued by the Procurement Department is required prior to fulfilling any request.
  • Approved purchase orders are issued solely by the Procurement Department and a verbal order or your company order confirmation is a non-binding order.
  • If District Staff does not provide a Purchase Order document, do not supply or deliver the services requested. Failure to obtain a valid Purchase Order document prior to order fulfillment may result in non-payment.
  • Accounts Payable will not process an invoice for payment without a current and valid Purchase Order number referenced on the invoice.
