Contracting & E-Rate Services Department

The Contracting & E-Rate Services (CES) Department works in close collaboration with the District's Purchasing Department to ensure the proper procurement of services from outside contractors.  CES develops and implements standard contracting and service agreement documentation and approval processes and reviews and recommends changes to contract language to manage risk, exposure and obligation for the TRUSD.  The Department works with internal and external customers to develop lease agreements for use of District sites.  CES provides guidance in competitive bidding processes and ensures the proper evaluation and selection of contractors in compliance with California Education Code, Public Contract Code and other federal, state, and local laws and regulations.  CES participates in the internal review of grant documentation and tracks the District's receipt of associated funding.

The CES Department administers TRUSD's E-Rate program, in close association with the District's IT Support Services Department.  This federal program helps us obtain up to $4M annually in the form of reimbursements for eligible telecommunication and technology related services and infrastructure. 

Cellular phones are also a CES Department responsibility.  The Department develops and implements procedures, assists with user concerns, surpluses and recycles old equipment, monitors expenses, and procures new equipment as necessary for employees whose positions require them to carry a District-provided cell phone.

We are happy to support the District's staff and stakeholders as they work to inspire each student to extraordinary achievement every day!
