The Eastern Pulaski School Board will be obtaining bus bids and Superintendent Dan Foster said the corporation will be doing that process online.
“The Service Center now has a way to do it that’s been approved by the State Board of Accounts,” explained Foster. “Basically, it’s an online way to receive your bus bids. You’re going to receive bids from the same two or three companies that would have normally would have submitted to you anyway. It’s just going to save our folks in the office a little bit of time.”
This takes the place of the old format of listing specifications and sending it to a newspaper and receiving bids within a certain amount of time.
Once bids have been received, the board will approve a recommended bid.
