The board of education is aware of N.J.S.A. 18A:18A-21 which states the following:

"At such time and place the purchasing agent of the board of education shall publicly receive the bids and thereupon immediately proceed to unseal them and publicly announce the contents, which announcement shall be made in the presence of any parties bidding or their agents who are then and there present."

Given the ongoing emergency declarations related to COVID-19 and to ensure “social distancing” amongst all parties, the District is eliminating the group gathering for the bid opening. Instead, the bid opening will be streamed live using Zoom.

Welcome

The primary focus of the Purchasing Department is to obtain the right product, at the right price, at the right time and to meet the needs of the students, faculty, and the administrative staff of Paterson Public Schools.

The Purchasing Department’s vision is to be a leader among governmental public procurement specialists within the City of Paterson as well as the State of New Jersey.

This expertise insures that procurement decisions will be made in the best interest of the District and in compliance with New Jersey state statutes and District policies.
