For the third consecutive year, Conroe ISD has received the Purchasing Award of Merit from the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) for its commitment to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.
“Responsible use of taxpayers’ dollars is a duty not taken lightly,” said Rick Reeves, Conroe ISD Director of Purchasing. “We are proud of being recognized for our dedication to conscientious fiscal management.”
The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize school districts and other educational entities. 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 recertification applications. Conroe ISD was one of only 58 districts in the State that met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award.
“As Texas school districts face ever-increasing pressure to use funds efficiently, we’re honored to recognize the work our honorees do to streamline 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 purchasing operations by documenting their districts’ policies and procedures but have also shared these best practices with colleagues throughout the state.”
