PUHSD Hosting a Vendor/Buyer Conference

Posted by Community Relations on 9/30/2015

Phoenix Union High School District is hosting a Vendor/Buyer conference that will focus on a Local Vendor Outreach Program (LVOP), October 8 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. at Central High School (4525 N. Central Ave.)  The LVOP does not give preferences to local vendors, but merely seeks out local vendors to provide them with every opportunity to compete for business.

Phoenix Union and its partner elementary districts will be present to show companies how to do business with school districts, and have the opportunity to meet end-users face-to-face.

“Our philosophy is that it is our responsibility as public purchasing professionals to reach out in our local economy and attract those businesses to strengthen our community as a whole.  We want our local vendors to have the best chance to compete for our business in an open market competition which is the essence of our free enterprise system,” Phoenix Union Purchasing Manager Lila McCleery said.

The event will be held in the Central High cafeteria. Parking is available in the north lot.   For more information or to RSVP as a vendor, contact Lila McCleery at (602) 764-1404 or mccleery@phoenixunion.org
