All commitments of purchases will be made by an approved Purchase Order number assigned by the Procurement Department. Products/services are not to be delivered without an approved Purchase Order. Vendors accepting orders without a purchase order number do so at their own risk.
The Marana district utilizes a registration system powered by Vendor Registry. Vendor Registry standardizes and streamlines vendor registration and the purchasing process. In addition, Vendor Registry and Marana USD will be able to notify vendors of important bid opportunities in the future.
Prior to registering as a Vendor with the Marana Unified School District #6, read the statement below.
