Welcome to Portland Public Schools!

ProcurementSearch.com is pleased and proud to announce that Portland Public Schools has joined as our latest member agency!

Thank you so much, Portland Public Schools, for helping small businesses find and bid on your contracts!

On July 16, 2012 the PPS Board of Education adopted the Equity in Public Purchasing and Contracting (EPPC) Policy.

The EPPC Policy has three primary goals:

  • Provide greater professional, supplier, construction, and personal service opportunities to minority-owned businesses, women-owned businesses and emerging small businesses.
  • Increase the numbers of women and minorities in the construction trades through apprenticeship opportunities on District construction contracts.
  • Leverage our public contracting activity to expand the number of young people of color and young women participating in a wide variety of career learning programs.

The EPPC policy is adopted as part of the District’s larger Racial Education Equity Policy.  You can read more about the PPS EPPC here:  http://www.pps.net/Page/1582

And, as part of their efforts, PPS has now joined with ProcurementSearch.com!  I’m so excited they’re a part of our family.  You can now find every new PPS contract and RFP on ProcurementSearch.com.

PPS Purchasing & Contracting is now on social media, too!
