HEB ISD Purchasing Department Earns TASBO 2023 Award of Merit

On January 31, 2023, the Texas Association of School Business Officials (TASBO) recognized Hurst-Euless-Bedford ISD with a 2023 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations. The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school systems for commitment to professional standards in purchasing. Out of more than 1,000 school systems in the state, only 71 recipients met the award criteria for 2023.

This latest award continues a tradition of efficiency and effectiveness – HEB ISD’s Purchasing Department also earned this honor in each of the last 3 years!

“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.”
