TRANSPARENCY FOR VCUSD PURCHASE ORDERS
For months, community members have been asking Vallejo City Unified School District (VCUSD) to be transparent with purchase orders. Demand that the newly elected VCUSD Board and Superintendent Ramona Bishop instruct staff to answer questions about purchase orders whenever the public asks. We need them to be transparent and accountable to the public.
- How can VCUSD justify purchase orders such as a CURVED flatscreen monitor for over $1000 ordered from BH Audio in NYC delivered to the VCUSD warehouse? What's the purpose of this expense? Who has it and where is it located?
- Approximately $19,000 spent on blazers for hospitality academy at VHS. Was it for staff, students and administration? How many? Any competitive bidding done?
- Curious and vague purchase orders with little or no descriptions. Dec's purchase order increases totaling $146,000 had no vendor name or specifics.
- VCUSD refuses to look at buying re-furbished computers. If Fairfield school district buys re-furbished computers to save a dollar, so can VCUSD.
PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION AND DEMAND THAT VCUSD FOLLOW BEST PRACTICES AND TRANSPARENCY WHEN IT COMES TO PURCHASING. LET'S STOP THE WASTE!!
