Doing Business with MISD
Midland ISD, as well as all other school districts in the State of Texas, is governed by the state competitive bid law; therefore, the majority of our purchasing is done via competitive sealed bids or proposals.
In March 2016, the Midland ISD Purchasing Department moved from paper bidding process to an electronic bidding system. MISD e-Bid, the new e-bidding system, is used by all vendors/suppliers regardless of whether or not they are current, awarded vendors or new applicants. To register or to login visit the MISD page at www.midlandisd.com/domain/44.Purchasingoverviewpage.

The purpose and intent of this competitive process is to help public schools obtain the best products at the lowest practical prices in the best interest of the taxpayers by stimulating competition. The Midland ISD is committed to fair and equal competition among all vendors and does not allow favoritism to be shown to any vendor. With the exception of construction projects, the bids that typically go through Purchasing are annual contracts for supplies and/or services. The Purchasing Department is also responsible to the Board of Trustees for other one-time purchase which cost more than $50,000.00.
The bidder’s registration in the MISD e-Bid System is used to identify vendors who desire to participate in the competitive bid or proposal process by being added to our vendor database. This registration is not intended to add a vendor to approved vendor list, but to make sure all those that desire to be part of the process get sent the appropriate invitation to bid or propose. Vendor approval status is based on the awarding of bids and proposals per the purchasing guidelines.
Applicants should carefully review the list of commodities and/or services on the bidder’s registration and clearly mark the items supplied by your company. Be sure to mark all that apply, in order to guarantee that your data will properly listed in the vendor database. There is no charge to register as a supplier.
