Purchasing Department

The Purchasing Department is here to work with and be a resource to our school site staff and county departments in procuring the tools needed to support exemplary teaching, learning and public service for Ventura County Office of Education.

By relationships with vendors, knowledge of sources of supply and current pricing, the Purchasing Department works to achieve the best value and end result for the public funds expended. 

The Purchasing Department works within the framework of California Education Code, Public Contract Code, and other laws that govern public purchasing in the state of California, to ensure that the county operates in a fiscally and legally responsible manner. We aim to simplify and expedite the purchasing process for those we serve.
