Procurement Services

Welcome to the Zapata County Independent School District (ZCISD) Purchasing Services website. 

The mission of the ZCISD Purchasing Services Department is to ensure the uninterrupted flow of goods and services needed to operate the district in an efficient and cost-effective manner to achieve its primary goal of increasing student achievement.



Prior To Procuring Goods or Services For Your Department/Campus  


NOTICE: All vendors must be selected under one of the procurement methods stipulated in Chapter 44, section 44.031 of the Texas Education Code and approved by the ZCISD Board of Education before ZCISD can begin using their goods and/or services.  ZCISD requires all vendors to have an approved procurement instrument (i.e., purchase order, term contract, blanket purchase agreement, etc.) in place prior to providing goods or services. Entering into contracts verbally or without appropriate authorization is prohibited and a violation of state law. Any vendor who delivers services or goods to ZCISD without a proper contract is doing so entirely at their own risk. ZCISD does not pay for goods or services that were provided without the benefit of a properly executed procurement contract.
