• Doing Business with MISD

    Midland ISD and all other school districts in the State of Texas are governed by the state competitive bid law; therefore, most of our purchasing is done via competitive sealed bids or proposals.

    In March 2016, the Midland ISD Purchasing Department moved from a 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 log in, visit the MISD page at Midland ISD Ebid System.

    If your company requires further information concerning a specific topic, please get in touch with our office.

    The purpose and intent of this competitive process are to help public schools obtain the best products at the lowest reasonable 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.  Except for construction projects, the bids typically go through Purchasing are annual contracts for supplies and services. The Purchasing Department is also responsible to the Board of Trustees for other one-time purchases which cost more than $50,000.00.

    Bidder’s/Supplier’s Registration
    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 the 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 services on the bidder’s registration and mark the items supplied by your company. Be sure to mark all that apply to guarantee that your data will be listed correctly in the vendor database. There is no charge to register as a supplier.

    Noticed to Potential Bidders
    The District advertises all requests for sealed bids and proposals in the Midland Reporter-Telegram. All registered suppliers will receive a Bid/RFP notification for commodity
