Providing Goods or Services Requires an Approved CPS Purchase Order
In order to do business with the Chicago Public Schools (CPS), you must obtain an approved purchase order prior to providing any goods or services. This has been Board policy for many years, and is completely consistent with proper business practices. However, it is now evident that adherence to this has not been flawless, so we are putting all vendors on notice in no uncertain terms. Click here for more information.
