Background: In January 2019, the Milwaukee Board of School Directors adopted
Resolution 1819R-011 regarding a local purchasing program.

Through adoption of the Resolution, the Board directed the Administration, in conjunction with the Office of Accountability and Efficiency (OAE), to explore the feasibility of instituting a local purchasing program modeled after the City’s program.

The attached presentation details the output of this work to date, providing an analysis and summary of the City's program, as well as those of the City of Madison and the School District of Palm Beach County, and other considerations for exploring the institution of a local purchasing program.

In summary, the parameters, limitations, and current conditions of local purchasing programs are presented for discussion, and a review of next steps for consideration is included.
