AUSTIN, TEXAS (January 24, 2024) – Conroe ISD is proud to be recognized for a fifth-straight year by the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with the 2024 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.
Each year, volunteers with the TASBO Purchasing & Supply Management Research Committee evaluate the award criteria to ensure it represents the latest best practices. They then review new and recertifications applications. For 2024, only 77 recipients (out of more than 1,200 school systems) met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award.
“We’re proud of the work our honorees do to streamline school purchasing operations, comply with regulations, and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” said Tracy Ginsburg, TASBO Executive Director. “These organizations have not only demonstrated their professional acumen by documenting their districts’ policies and procedures, but have also shared these best practices with colleagues throughout Texas.”
Members of the District’s purchasing team will be honored at an awards receptions sponsored by BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative in Houston on February 21 during the 2024 TASBO annual conference.
