The Law Relating to Procurement
Failure to execute a proper contract can lead to serious legal difficulties. Suppliers are asked to ensure they have a purchase order or other appropriate authorization from the Supply Management Department before they supply goods or services. Without such authorization, the district may not be obligated to pay the resulting invoice.

A contract is defined as “An agreement between two or more persons which creates an obligation to do or not to do a particular thing”. It can be verbal or written. Canceling a contract can be extremely difficult and expensive; therefore, care must be taken before entering into a contract to make certain that the contract is in the best interest of the two parties.
