Good Stewards of Taxpayer Dollars

We strive to provide the best quality products and services necessary to support the educational process at the best value, in order to be good stewards of the taxpayers’ dollars.

 
Vendor Information

• Vendors must contact the Strategic Sourcing Department for prior authorization before contacting or visiting any school and/or staff member (Board Policy DJGA).
• Only authorized representatives of the Strategic Sourcing Department will issue a purchase order number, obligate the District for purchase of goods and services, and revise or cancel a purchase order (Board Policy DJ-R).
• No purchase will be made without the proper requisitions and authorized signatures. Exception to this procedure will be made only in an extreme emergency. No “confirming” or “after-the-fact” purchase authorizations will be allowed.
• The District does not have an “approved vendor list”. Vendors do not fill out a vendor application to become an “approved vendor”.  The District uses Rocky Mountain E-Purchasing to solicit bids; vendors are encouraged to register directly with them.

Warehouse Operations

In order to ensure maximum efficiency, DCSD maintains a warehouse. This allows us to purchase certain materials in bulk or during off-season, saving District taxpayers.

Our District Supply Warehouse is located at 701 Prairie Hawk Drive, Castle Rock, CO 80104. Please contact the warehouse at warehouse_questions[at]dcsdk12[dot]org or 720-433-1224 with any questions.

Delivery Information

We accept deliveries at the warehouse between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm, closed for lunch, 12:00 - 1:00 pm. Deliveries may be made at the warehouse dock doors on the south side of the building.

Employee Payroll

The Payroll Department provides key services for the District by processing all payroll and associated transactions for all District employees on a monthly basis, ensuring all transactions are completed discreetly, accurately and on time.
