Welcome to Crandall ISD Purchasing! The Purchasing Department oversees purchases throughout our district to ensure we provide the best value goods and services. Crandall ISD, as well as all other school districts in the State of Texas, is governed by federal, state, and local competitive procurement statutes, regulations and policies. Therefore, the majority of purchasing is done via a competitive procurement process such as a Request for Bid (RFB), Proposal (RFP), Competitive Sealed Bids (CSB) or Proposals (CSP).

Effective June 2022, the Crandall ISD Purchasing Department has moved from a paper bidding process to an electronic bidding system. CISD e-Bid, the new e-bidding system, is used by all vendors/suppliers regardless of whether they are current, awarded vendors or new applicants. Register now using Supplier Registration on the CISD e-bid portal by clicking on the Crandall ISD icon below.

Doing Business with CISD

Our goal is to increase participation in the bid process by encouraging vendors to view our Current Bid Opportunities. Doing business with Crandall ISD couldn't be any easier with our electronic bidding system.

For any questions or concerns, please contact the Purchasing department at 972-427-6010 or

Our office is located at 400 West Lewis Street, Crandall, TX 75114.

TASBO Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations

Crandall ISD is proud to be recognized by The Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with a 2023 & 2024 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services. 

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, only 71 recipients met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award.

“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.”
