2012 Buyers’ & Resource Guide

The First Published Illinois ASBO Buyers’ & Resource Guide Never has the need for understanding the economics, planning, and purpose of purchasing been so great in education. In virtually all our conversations, we hear school district administrators talk about how they must “do more, with less” as they come face-toface with a wide range of tough issues in their communities. Educational performance and operational responsibility are under the watchful eyes of Board members, parents, community activists, education lobbyists – and yes, even students. We live in a world of growing transparency – which is a good thing when done correctly and with purpose. So where can a school business administrator, purchasing and facility director turn? As a member of Illinois ASBO, we believe our members first should turn to their fellow Service Associate members as their best resource for professionalism and expertise. At Illinois ASBO, you’ll find over 300 companies and nearly 600 individuals who represent businesses, service organizations, and products that are focused on our industry. They are listed in this Guide by Category, and I encourage you to not hesitate to call any one of them for advice and counsel. Secondly, we hope that our members will turn to their fellow Association peers through the wide variety of professional development seminars, regional meetings, special events we offer, as well as our Annual Conference. The Purchasing Manual excerpt provided in our new Buyers’ & Resource Guide is one example of the fine thought and work that goes on behind the scenes at Illinois ASBO. It’s a content-rich tool that addresses questions that arise in every school business office every day. How do we know? It was developed by 33 individual contributing members who are directly engaged in purchasing for school districts throughout Illinois. Lastly, we encourage our members to expand both their personal and virtual relationships through our members-only peer2peer Network. This web-enabled and protected community can become a natural place to ask a question, seek an answer, or post a best practice. Doing more with less, means we also help our members find the best ways to maximize what little time they do have to make quality judgments and decisions – whether virtually, on the phone, or in person. I encourage you to use this first publishing of the Illinois ASBO Buyers’ & Resource Guide as it should be used. Tag-it, post-it, pass it along and dog-ear it. We think any tool worth its grade will look pretty worn after a few months. And, we hope you’ll grade this one as we have – just for you. Best Wishes for Your Continued Success,

Michael A. Jacoby, Ed.D., SFO Executive Director, Illinois ASBO

Individuality & Contribution, How Illinois ASBO Is Shaping Futures The most striking aspect of Illinois ASBO is its ability to foster excellence on a very individual and intimate scale. This new Illinois ASBO Buyers’ & Resource Guide is only one example of how our Association members can tap into their own greatness by getting to know our Service Associate members and by calling upon their expertise. Members often tell us that they wouldn’t know how they might have been able to succeed if not for the Association. Our members are Shaping Futures for the hundreds of children that each of us meets every day on school property. And, as an Association, we work hard in Shaping Futures for our members. Here’s how: Foremost, the Association creates networking opportunities where professionals can speak frankly and openly to one another. Nineteen individual committees are focused on professional development for our members. Each one covers a distinctive topic that impacts not only the daily life of school business officials, but also the quality of the educational experience that we deliver in each community. Over 325 committee members and their chairs identify what’s most important and how best to find the knowledge and expertise that is required to keep our industry moving forward. Countless hours go into conceiving and hosting the variety of nearly 100 Seminars and Events that are offered from September through May each year. Can’t attend in person? In some instances, seminars are webcast online. No doubt, you’ll find some of the same support materials and content on in the Illinois ASBO website’s resource library available in our community portal, peer2peer Network. For those wanting to build upon already existing strengths, the Association provides an outstanding cohort experience in our Leadership Institute. A three-prong curriculum forms the foundation for a systematic approach to evaluating your own orientation to problem-solving and communication, as well as self-assessments and giving feedback to others. Registration accommodates a small group so the level of interactivity and relationship-building is extraordinarily high. One recent attendee remarked, “Learning from our frustrations and setbacks with the encouragement of the facilitators and the other students makes the Institute unique and exciting.” The glue of the Association can be seen in our Board of Directors, Service Associate Advisory Committee members, Professional Development Committee Chairs, Regional Organization Chairs, and our Editorial Advisory Board and staff. All in all, nearly 80 positions are engaged in these influential and contributive roles to keep Illinois ASBO at the forefront of the industry, face-to-face with our legislators, and shoulder to shoulder with our members throughout the state of Illinois. With over 860 school districts and over 2.1 million children in our public schools, school business officials face increasingly difficult challenges. Our Service Associates through their businesses, services, and products, offer the first range of solutions. We encourage you to look to them and to us to meet your daily needs and your personal expectations for growth and fulfillment. Sincerely,

Susan P. Bertrand Assistant Executive Director, Illinois ASBO

Illinois ASBO Purchasing Manual The following is the full-text excerpted Section XIII from the newly updated 2012 Illinois ASBO Purchasing Manual. The complete Manual will be available to all Illinois ASBO members late-2011 on CD and online. It will also be available on the Association’s peer2peer Network (accessible through www.iasbo.org). Special thanks to the Purchasing Committee members and Illinois ASBO volunteers who contributed countless hours in bringing this comprehensive Manual to life for the benefit of all our members and their districts and for their permission to produce it in full for the Guide. For a complete listing of all contributors, see page 4 in the Illinois ASBO Buyers’ & Resource Guide.

1. Purpose The business office will coordinate purchasing within the framework of the rules and regulations of the Board of Education and state statute. The objective of purchasing policy is to secure requirements for services, materials, supplies and equipment for the institution at the lowest possible cost consistent with satisfactory standards for quality and service.

a) Initiating new services and/or reviewing present services for possible improvement;

The Board of Education purchasing policy covers not only the procurement of equipment and supplies, but also any commitments of funds for rentals and service agreements. These commitments must be covered by purchase orders and, if they are to extend beyond one year, must be renewed by a replacement purchase order. To simplify budgeting and the accounting procedures, commitments of this nature should run concurrent with the fiscal year whenever possible. Before the start of each fiscal year, each responsible party should initiate a new requisition requesting that a purchase order be processed replacing the previous one.

b) Establishing procedures for new services and reviewing existing procedures for possible simplification and/or improvement;

Depending on the conditions, many requisitions can be processed in 24 to 48 hours from the time of receipt in the purchasing department.

c) Administering special projects under the jurisdiction of administrative services.

The purchasing department procures materials and services for the institution and is also responsible for the following:

A. INTRODUCTION 1. Administrative Area The business office is responsible for providing numerous services to the institution within the administrative services area. This operation is organized into three areas, each contributing services to accomplish the operational requirements:

2. Purchasing Department The Purchasing Department is responsible for the acquisition of all equipment, furniture, supplies and outside services for the institution according to Board of Education policy.

The specifications must be accompanied with a properly executed requisition. 2.

Final approval within this category shall be made by the purchasing official. b) The names, addresses and phone numbers of three suppliers should accompany the requisition. If a staff member does not know of three suppliers, they may contact the purchasing department for additional information. Purchasing has the option of contacting sources in addition to those listed on the requisition. c) Purchases of in excess of $25,000 or more require FORMAL SEALED BIDS with some exceptions (See Section 10-20.21 of the School Code). Formal bids require advertisement in the newspaper, a minimum of 10 days from the date of issue to the opening date and time. Board approval is required. d) When preparing a requisition for sealed bids, it is necessary to include a list of suggested suppliers’ names, addresses and phone numbers with the requisition and specifications. Include as many suppliers as possible. The purchasing department has the option of adding other suppliers to the bid list.

It also makes possible the proper encumbering and charging of materials and services against the correct accounts. b) All expenditures of funds for supplies, equipment and services must be covered by a properly executed purchase order. Materials or services received that are NOT covered by a purchase order are the LIABILITY of the person or persons making the original commitment and are NOT the responsibility of the institution. An employee assumes personal liability for making purchases without following procedure. As a matter of law, an individual without express authority cannot contractually commit on behalf of the institution. The employee personally contracts for the goods or services. 2. Procedure a) Upon the completion of all the requirements set forth in the purchasing policy and the requisitioning procedure, a purchase order will be prepared. b) The requisitioner receives notification of the purchase order number when it is approved. The accounting department submits the vendor’s copy and may also retain a paper copy in their files. c) NOTE: No invoice will be paid unless receiving has been completed and the fees are appropriate.

2012 Buyers’ & Resource Guide

KEY EVENTS PROVIDE ADDITIONAL FOCUS The Illinois ASBO Annual Conference provides members the greatest opportunity to interface with one another while being ‘recharged’ with up-to-theminute seminars and presentations.

The Delegate Advisory Assembly makes recommendations to the Illinois ASBO Board in regards to issues of public policy and/or legislation involving resource management of education. The Illinois Statewide School Management Alliance is a consolidated effort led by the Executive Directors and Boards from four participating organizations: Illinois Association of School Boards (IASB), Illinois Association of School Administrators (IASA), Illinois Association of School Business Officials (IASBO) and Illinois Principals’ Association (IPA). The Alliance speaks with a unified voice for school management and works on behalf of school board members and administrators from school districts of all sizes, geographic regions, types of school organizations, and from all degrees of wealth.

Sponsored Programs Illinois ASBO is an active sponsor or co-sponsor of five different state-wide programs that provide specific services to assist in the daily function of school districts. These programs have been vetted to be sure they serve the mission of the Association, as well as provide services to help our districts lower their operating costs.

Illinois Energy Consortium The Illinois Energy Consortium is a joint energy purchasing consortium sponsored by Illinois ASBO (School Business Officials), IASB (School Boards), and IASA (School Administrators). It is the Midwest’s largest energy purchasing pool. The consortium has generated millions of dollars in savings for Illinois education in both of its electric and gas programs, and is a ready-resource to provide answers and solutions to its members. Before a potential member decides to participate in the IEC Electric Program, the Program Administrator, Ameren Energy Marketing, can perform a full Budget Projection, based on historical usage and current IEC supply costs. This analysis will show the district how much they can save by participating in the Program. Participants in the IEC Gas Program have access to EnerPro©, an online energy management tool designed to bring information regarding your natural gas accounts directly to your desktop. IEC is governed by a board consisting of an equal number of representatives from each sponsoring association (Illinois ASBO, IASB and IASA). Executive directors from each association are also board members. BENEFIT: IEC is designed to lower utility costs for Illinois school districts and community colleges. Website: illec.org

2012 Buyers’ & Resource Guide

P-Card p-Card is an Illinois ASBO sponsored program featuring Procurement Cards, or p-Cards. p-Cards have existed in the private and public sectors for many years as a means to streamline the traditional purchasing process. The Illinois ASBO program is in contract with Harris Bank/MasterCard to provide school districts, community colleges and other educational entities in Illinois and other states with a procurement card. While ‘looking’ like a credit or debit card, p-cards are very different. In most school districts, 55-60% of AP checks are for less than $500, yet experts at Deloitte Consulting say that the average cost of processing a purchase order manually is in excess of $75 when considering employee time for data entry and procurement processes. Automating procurement with the help of a p-Card, reduces that cost to between $10 - $40. The benefits of a p-Card Program for school business managers includes the ability to submit one monthly payment vs. multiple payments to multiple vendors; the reduction in paperwork; fraud prevention and protection from the Harris Bank and MasterCard; detailed reporting that’s available 24/7; easy online administration and dedicated customer support and lastly control on spending limits and accepted vendors. BENEFIT: p-Card is designed to streamline the purchasing process, while increasing budget control and reducing the overall cost of payments. Website: Illinois-pcard.com

U.S. Communities The U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance is sponsored by Illinois ASBO, as well as the State Board of Education in Illinois. On a national scale, the Alliance is sponsored by ASBO International, the National Association of Counties (NACO), the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP), the National League of Cities (NLC), and the United States Conference of Mayors (USCM).

If it’s needed in a district, chances are, it’s included in the range of contract goods and services offerings available from U.S. Communities. Product categories include office and classroom solutions, technology solutions, facilities solutions, and specialty solutions. Illinois ASBO members are encouraged to register – registration is free – to participate in the U.S. Communities government purchasing cooperative. BENEFIT: U.S. Communities is a national-scale government purchasing cooperative that’s available to local school Districts throughout Illinois through Illinois ASBO, providing competitively bid contracts and most favorable local agency pricing. Website: uscommunities.org

Call One Call One, the nation’s largest wholesaler/reseller of local and long distance service, has teamed up with Illinois ASBO to lower the cost of phone bills at school districts across Illinois. Call One provides innovative, comprehensive telecommunications solutions to over 9,000-plus clients throughout the nation. Currently, Call One also provides local and long distance service to over 50 school districts throughout Illinois. Members that team up with Call One can switch over existing AT&T local services and apply the new rates with no physical change. No matter what the size of your institution, all Illinois ASBO members receive the same rate. Call One customers enjoy consolidated and customized billing, including online billing and records. And, finally, Call One is ready to consult with members so school districts can keep up with the newest technologies and services. BENEFIT: Call One provides superior service and cost savings to Illinois ASBO members in AT&T areas for local and long distance calling. Website: callone.com

The program provides all local agencies with publicly competitively bid contracts for various products and services. Smaller local agencies may ‘piggyback’ on a contract competitively solicited by another public agency. The ability to tap into the buying power of larger purchasers assures Alliance members receive access to excellent pricing and contract terms.
