    Sales Tax Exemption


    Purchase Authority & Restrictions
    School District employees are not allowed to commit District funds (i.e. place orders) without authorization.  Purchase Orders and Purchase Contracts may be authorized by the FNSBSD Superintendent, Chief Operating Officer, or designated Purchasing Official. Acceptance of an order placed without such authorization may jeopardize your payment.

    1. Formal Competition
      For purchases exceeding $100k in value, price competition will be documented via formal solicitation (IFB/RFP). Contracts for goods exceeding $100k will be approved by the FNSB School Board in accordance with Board Policy.
    2. Semi-formal Competition
      For purchases of items that cost $1,000 or more, price competition must be documented. Depending on the specifics of the order, this may be accomplished via electronic mail, documented telephone quotes, or by a written request for quotations.
    3. Small Purchases
      Purchases under $1,000 can be made without documented competition. End users may use their own discretion when selecting a source for such purchases. The Purchasing Department reserves the right to change sources when it is in the best interest of the School District.
