McKinney, Texas – The McKinney ISD Purchasing Department has earned the 2024 Award of Merit for Purchasing Operations from TASBO (Texas Association of School Business Officials).

“The Business Services Group has spent many hours compiling data to enhance financial transparency,” said MISD Chief Financial Officer Marlene Harbeson. “It takes a lot of hard work to meet the requirements to even be considered for this award, and we are so proud and honored that our efforts have been officially recognized by TASBO.”

The Award of Merit was established in 2009 to recognize Texas school districts, open-enrollment charter schools, and education services centers that are committed to following professional standards in the acquisition of goods and services.

Each year, volunteers with the TASBO Purchasing & Supply Management Research Committee evaluate the award criteria to ensure it represents the latest best practices. They then review new and recertification applications. This is the first year that MISD has applied for the award.

“As Texas school districts face ever-increasing pressure to use funds efficientIy, we’re honored to recognize the work our honorees do to streamline operations, comply with regulations and set the standard for how to utilize taxpayer dollars,” said TASBO Executive Director Tracy Ginsburg. “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 the state.”
