The Purchasing Department operates under the Division of Financial Services and is the central procurement arm for Rockdale County Public Schools. Our mission is to provide best practices in the purchase of goods and services through fair competitive processes and support to each school and central office department. We do this in accordance with Board policies and state laws governing educational procurement.

Our goal is to obtain the highest quality supplies, materials, services, and equipment at the lowest possible cost and in the shortest period of time from responsible vendors. This is accomplished through the issuance of Request for Quotations (RFQ), Invitation for Bids (IFB), and Request for Proposals (RFP), as well as local, federal, and State of Georgia contracts.

Hours of operation: 7:30 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  Appointments are preferred, though not mandatory.  Deliveries will be accepted between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
