The Montgomery County Board of Education has requested community comment regarding Policy DJA, Procurement Practices. This policy recognizes the procurement practices published in the Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Procurement Manual and Maryland law, establishes limits for advertising bids and obtaining bid approval by the Montgomery County Board of Education, and puts in place a process for the Board Fiscal Management Committee to review the Procurement Manual

MCPS Procurement Practices, with language from Policy DJB, Bid Awards, and rescinding Policy DJB.

Policy DJA, Procurement Practices, is available through the Department of Public Information and Web Services by calling 301-279-3391. You also can access the policy on the MCPS website.
