Procurement leads the sourcing, purchasing and vendor management for Minneapolis Public Schools. Our goal is to bring a best value approach that allows the school district to spend funds in the best way possible in support of improving the educational experience.
Vendors interested in doing business with MPS can participate in the selection process in the following ways:
- OP - Official Publication: Vendor participates in an OP process and is awarded business via bid for goods
- RFP - Request for Proposals: Vendor participates in an RFP process and is awarded the business for services
Vendors are asked to provide a quote and are selected if their product or service is identified as the best fit for MPS.
Due to limited resources in Procurement, we are unable to meet with all vendors that reach out to our department.
