• Welcome to the Purchasing Department web site for the Florence City School System.

    Our Mission is to provide support to our local schools and central office staff in the strategic procurement of specialized products and services in support of student learning. This is accomplished through the issuance of phone quotes, written bids, request for proposals, State of Alabama contracts and other local and federal agency contracts.

    The Purchasing Department will utilize the most expeditious and cost-effective procurement methods to secure required products and services and maximum value for each dollar spent. All purchases are based on sound business practices as established by board approved policies.

    As a public agency, the Florence City School System adheres to strict laws, rules and ethical practices when purchasing goods and services. Florence City School System employees do not conduct purchasing transactions for personal benefit.

    The Mission of the Business and Finance Department is to provide quality business, finance, and nutrition services at a reasonable cost in support of the School District's mission and the achievement of its goals.
