The objective of the Kern High School District’s Business Services Department is to safely maximize student success while providing enhanced support services to District educational programs. The Business Services Department welcomes contractors, suppliers and service providers interested in doing business with the District. It is our responsibility to ensure that District contracts and purchases comply with all legal requirements and Kern High School District Board policy which will culminate in a fair and competitive process.

KHSD is currently providing on-line distribution of all invitations for bids, request for proposals, and request for qualifications. The District would like to invite all contractors, suppliers, and service providers to register in our on-line Vendor Directory. Registration can be completed in minutes and will result in automatic e-mail invitations to you each time a project is posted meeting the criteria submitted with your registration. There is no cost to register as a vendor or to view or download current Bids, RFP’s, or RFQ’s.

In the event that you are unable to download and/or print electronic copies you may pick up specifications, plans and addenda at the reception desk in Business Services. We are located at the east end of the District Office in the Business entrance:
