Tomball ISD Named a Recipient of the 2023 TASBO Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations
AUSTIN - Tomball ISD is proud to be recognized by The Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with a 2023 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations.
The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.
“As Texas school districts face ever-increasing pressure to use funds efficiently, we’re proud of the work our honorees do to streamline operations, comply with regulations, and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” said Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO Executive Director. “These organizations have not only demonstrated their professional purchasing operations by documenting their districts’ policies and procedures, but have also shared these best practices with colleagues throughout Texas.”
Each year, volunteers with the TASBO Purchasing & Supply Management Research Committee evaluate the award criteria to ensure it represents the latest best practices. They then review new and recertification applications. For 2023, Tomball ISD was one of only 71 recipients that met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award.
“I am very proud that Tomball ISD and the Purchasing Department is being recognized for this award,” said Zack Boles, TISD Assistant Superintendent of Finance. “It continues to demonstrate the district’s commitment to excellence, and its fiscally-responsible use of taxpayer dollars.”
Members of the district’s purchasing team were honored at an awards reception sponsored by BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative during the 2023 TASBO annual conference.
