Welcome to the Purchasing Department. As a service-oriented member of the Business Services Team, purchasing uses skills, dedication, and professionalism to balance administrative requirements and academic interests.
The Purchasing Department orders all goods, materials and equipment for the District. It is our goal to get the product in the hands of the teachers and students in a timely manner, making for the optimum educational experience for all students. We view the students and staff in the District as our customers, and we look for ways to provide our customers with a quality product, at a reasonable price, in a timely and expeditious manner.
The Purchasing Department consists of one full-time Director position, and one full-time Purchasing and Inventory Control Specialist position.
The Warehouse which is under the Director of Purchasing consists of, one full-time Lead Warehouse position, three full-time Warehouse Delivery positions, one of which is dedicated to Nutritional Services. The District Receiving Warehouse is located at 5715 Utah Trail #1209, 29 Palms, Ca. 92277. Its hours of operation are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Deliveries are only accepted from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. daily. The Receiving Warehouse is the central location for receipt of all products ordered by the Purchasing Department using a Purchase Order. The Warehouse also coordinates all product, food, and mail deliveries to all 17 school site locations throughout the district, by making daily runs to all sites. The Warehouse also assists the Custodial Supervisor and other departments with "special projects". The Warehouse staff is skilled in warehouse operations, logistics, and providing quality service to all sites and departments on a daily basis.
It is the goal of both departments to provide the student and staff population of the Morongo Unified School District with the best and most efficient service level available. We continually look for new and inventive ways to provide a quality service and will continue to do so in the future.
