HOUSTON – March 25, 2019 – Spring Independent School District was recognized as a recipient of the Award of Merit for School District Purchasing Operations at the annual conference awards luncheon of the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) on March 7.
The award is presented to Texas school districts and education service centers that demonstrate commitment to following professional standards in the purchase of goods and services. Spring ISD was recognized as one of 35 school districts in Texas to receive the recognition by TASBO.
“There’s no better way to achieve professional purchasing operations than to share best practices throughout the state and document your district’s policies and procedures,” said Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO executive director. “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.”
Spring ISD Procurement Services Executive Director Phillip Ellison said it was an honor to receive the award for following best practices in the area of purchasing operations.
“We pride ourselves on the work we do, and it’s wonderful to be recognized among the best in the state, but it’s also humbling,” said Ellison. “The work we do is ultimately for our students, and our job is to get our customers the products and services necessary to assist in educating our students.”
