Harris County Department of Education’s Purchasing Division was awarded the “Purchasing Award of Merit” by Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO). The award recognizes Texas school districts, open-enrollment charters and education service centers which are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services. In addition, HCDE’s Purchasing Division earned the “Best in Class” designation for its procurement card system (P-Card). “We could not be more pleased with the growing recognition of the important work all of our honorees do to streamline operations, comply with regulations and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO executive director said.
