Shelton's Tech Purchases & Donations

Tech Purchases & Donations

TECH PURCHASES & DONATIONS

All technology purchases (hardware and software) need to be processed and/or approved by the Tech Services Department before actually being sent to the district office purchasing department.
 
Donations of used or new equipment also needs to be approved by Tech Services prior to the donation being made.
 
There are four main reasons for this:
  1. The State Auditor requires the District to have in place audit and internal controls for all district-owned, theft-sensitive equipment. We must inventory, by properly tagging and identifying all small and attractive items and all technology equipment​. 
  2. We need to acquire standardized equipment to keep consistency between classrooms and buildings and make sure we are not receiving outdated equipment and/or software.
  3. We need to ensure the best value and where necessary go through a bid process to purchase equipment.
  4. We need to make sure proper versions of software are purchased and that there are no conflicts with existing software used in the district.

This means you must pre-approve all technology equipment or software purchases through the Tech Services Department before purchasing from Wal-Mart, other local vendors or over the internet.
 
Technology equipment includes at least the following kind of items: computers, Chromebooks, monitors, laptops, tablets, scanners, printers, faxes, digital still and video cameras, TVs, VCR, DVD players, laptop batteries etc. Things that do not need approval would be like consumer batteries.
 
As a note regarding the procedure: You can continue to route all technology purchases and donations through the Business Office purchasing desk or through Aaron Miller and they will be sure to get the approval​ signature on them for you. Please call Deb Nielsen or Aaron Miller if you have any questions regarding the procedure.​
