Del Valle ISD Honored with State-Wide Award
Purchasing department earns prestigious Award of Merit
Austin, TX – Del Valle ISD is proud to be recognized by The Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) with a 2023 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.
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. For 2023, only 71 recipients met the stringent criteria to qualify for the award. “I am very proud that Rosemary Banda who started Del Valle ISD's Purchasing Department and Solitaire Lind, Purchasing Coordinator, are being honored for the second year in a row with the TASBO Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. Both ladies have worked hard over a long period of time to continually raise the bar to this award-winning level.”, said Interim Chief Financial and Operations Officer, Kenneth Adix.
“As Texas school districts face ever-increasing pressure to use funds efficiently, we’re proud of 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 Texas.”
Members of the district’s purchasing team will be honored at an awards reception sponsored by BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative in San Antonio, Texas, on February 15 during the 2023 TASBO annual conference.
