Board Clocks $160,000 in Purchasing Department Rebate Checks
At this evening's school board meeting, the district's purchasing department had a great presentation to make to the board; Through strategic purchasing methods, the district was able to garner nearly $160,000 in rebates from vendors. Dell Computer rebated $34K, BBVA Compass brought a check for $5K and Regions bank wins the gold star-they brought us $119K! Sometimes it's not just what you buy, it's how you purchase and to whom you give the purchasing card business.
It was reported at tonight's meeting that in the last three year period, the district has earned $500,000 in rebates. Congratulations go out to Mr. John Dombroskie and the entire staff in the district's purchasing department.
