Supplier Information and Registration

Qualified and responsible suppliers are an important, valued and necessary resource for maintaining an effective teaching and learning environment here at Union Public Schools.  
Before a supplier can do business with the school district, the supplier must register with the District’s Purchasing and Accounting Departments. 

To be considered, a prospective supplier must: 

  • Complete and submit a signed Supplier Application / Master Memorandum of Understanding
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the supplier registration form
  • Agree to accept school district purchase orders
  • Agree to payment terms of 45 days without penalty of interest or late fees
  • Agree to accept the terms and conditions of the school district’s purchase order

Suppliers do not need to submit multiple applications.  All applications will be reviewed by the Accounting and Purchasing Departments. Supplier Registration and Commodity Bid Listing may be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to 918-357-6066. 

Potential suppliers who have submitted a commodity bid list sheet with their supplier application will be added to the Purchasing Department’s bidders’ database.  Submission and acceptance of a supplier’s application is not a guarantee of future business or bid award.

Sex offenders and violent offenders not permitted to work on school premises.

In order to do business with the district, suppliers must agree to comply with provisions of Oklahoma Statutes, Title 57 § 589 and Title 70 § 6-101.48.  Suppliers must agree not to knowingly or willfully permit any employee to work with or provide services to children or work on school premises if said employee or person is registered pursuant to the Oklahoma Sex Offenders Registration Act or the Mary Rippy Violent Crime Offenders Registration Act. 

Supplier compliance with these laws shall be evidenced by signing the Supplier Application or accepting and fulfilling a school district purchase order. 

Purchase orders

All school district purchase transactions will be conducted through the issuance of a Union Public Schools centrally processed and issued purchase order. Suppliers should not accept and process orders without obtaining the “Vendor” copy of the purchase order.

District Announcements

United Way Campaign

Once again, September will be a “Month of Giving” at Union Public Schools. We appreciate the generosity of Union students, families, teachers and staff as we raise funds for the 59 partner agencies of the Tulsa Area United Way. Thank you for joining in the fun as we support the United Way’s mission of uniting people and resources to improve lives and build a stronger community.

September is School Attendance Awareness Month

School spirit is a commitment. It requires that you be here, body and soul. Without a strong base, the pyramid falls apart. It’s the same in life. Going to class every day is important. Ten unexcused absences cancel your performance. Absence is the spirit-killer. A crowd-pleasing routine is more than just showing up . . . but it’s a great place to start. #UBeThere #ReptheU

New website

Union Public Schools has a new website! We are pleased to work with our new provider Gabbart Communications. While it is a brand-new website, we have purposely designed it to be familiar. So most items will be found in the places in which you are accustomed to finding them. We are continuing to refine the site and more features, such as video, are coming. If you have a comment, please email us.
