The goal of the Purchasing and Contracts Branch is to furnish the best possible service and support to ALL District sites and offices. It is the duty of the Purchasing and Contracts Branch, as empowered by the Board of Education, to serve the best interest of the District in all transactions while obtaining the maximum value for each dollar expended. This is all to be accomplished while providing the support necessary to our schools and offices to insure the educational success of all students.

The Purchasing and Contracts Branch is the main District branch responsible for the purchase and distribution of all supplies, equipment and materials, as well as for arranging services and contractual agreements. The branch is comprised of several sections; Purchasing, Contracts, Use of Facilities, Warehouse Receiving & Distribution, Records, and Duplicating Services.

The Purchasing & Contracts Branch maintains a database of suppliers for all classes of commodities and services purchased by the Long Beach Unified School District. Suppliers in our database have an increased potential of being notified of our bids, but that does not guarantee that you will receive a bid notice. The following link may be used to access our Bidder Database: Bidder Database, PlanetBids (TM).
