Contract & E-Rate Services
Contracting & E-Rate Services serves the entire District, both on the certificated and classified sides of the house, in the negotiation, drafting, execution, and approval of many types of contracts. Service Agreements, consulting agreements, technology licenses, curriculum procurement agreements, InterAgency MOUs, leases, Special Ed MOUs, Architect and other professional services agreements, and university affiliate/field training agreements are all within our purview.
Most people have questions about contracts. For example, what is a Services Agreement, and when do you need to enter one? What are MOUs, licenses, and joint use agreements? Is it OK to sign the other company’s contract? Is it OK to use a purchase requisition to obtain a software license?
You may need clarification on whether a written agreement is required and what type is appropriate. And you may wonder how long the process will take and who can sign the agreement.
These pages are designed to answer your questions and to provide tools to guide you through the contract process. The contract process has been moved online to Informed K12, enabling a smoother, paperless workflow and visibility of contracts in the process. When you click on the “Service Agreement” links, you will be taken right into the new system and guided step-by-step through the process.
There is also Q&A on the process and flowcharts on this page that shows the life of a contract from initiation to signature and PO.
We are here at your service! However, if you don’t find an answer here, you can always call or email us for help (firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) or ask us to create the contract for you.
