Procurement Department


The Procurement Team's main objective is to help ensure that the San Francisco Unified School District students and staff have the goods and services required for day to day operations.

Procurement and Purchasing Delays

The Procurement Department currently has limited Purchasers. There is a two-week, or ten business-day, delay in processing purchase orders. In the meantime, we are in the process of replacing those positions. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
