School District 25 Policy
Adopted: August 28, 2001
The Business Manager in charge of business affairs, under the authority of the Superintendent, will establish procedures in accordance with Wyoming statutes, regulations, and accepted business principles, to control the purchase of supplies, equipment, materials or services by school employees. If there are significant changes in the purchasing policy, the Board shall be made aware of that change.
The Business Manager in charge of business affairs, under the authority of the Superintendent, also will establish procedures to verify the receipt of items purchased by the District before payment will be made for the items ordered.
Any expenditure that does not follow the Superintendent-approved procedure may result in disciplinary action being taken against the employee responsible, as determined by the Board.
In accordance with approved procedures, designated employees may be authorized in writing by the Superintendent to make expenditures in cases of certified emergency, for subsequent approval by the Board.
Local purchases are encouraged. Whenever local purchases are made such purchases should be distributed among local merchants with a view toward equity.
