Become a Vendor
In accordance with Texas Education Code 44.031(a), the District shall contract for goods and non-professional services valued at $50,000 or more in the aggregate, over a 12-month period. Most commodities purchased in Tomball ISD are within this range. Therefore, vendors will need to be an awarded bid vendor, for most purchases, in order to do business in Tomball ISD. Bid opportunities are processed through our electronic bidding system.
Important Notice To Vendors
Tomball Independent School District (TISD) utilizes Bonfire, an online E-bidding and procurement software platform for vendor registration, solicitation notification, electronic bid submission and contract management. The vendor registration portal is available for vendors to register for bid notifications.
Please note that vendors not registered in Bonfire will not be notified of any TISD issued solicitations and will not be able to view solicitations located on our website until registration is complete; therefore all existing and prospective vendors interested in responding to a solicitation / Bid should immediately register on our E-Bidding platform, Bonfire.
After registering, the District will send email notifications through Bonfire when a TISD solicitation is issued relating to the product or service commodities you selected during the registration process.
Registration: To register and use the Bonfire bidding portal click the "E-BID Registration" button below

Bonfire Vendor Support: For support using the platform, access the online knowledge base, search the FAQ, or contact the Bonfire support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1-800-354-8010.
Registration does not automatically make you an approved vendor. It only provides the District with information to electronically notify you when a new solicitation is open for the products or services you offer and have selected during the registration process.
Be advised that much of our purchasing and vendor database is comprised of vendors listed on various cooperative purchasing agreements throughout the state. Visit our cooperative purchasing program page for details.
