California Association of School Business Officials, San Diego. Imperial Section.
Electronic data processing provides a fast and accurate system for handling large volumes of routine data. If properly employed, computers can perform myriad functions for purchasing operations, including purchase order writing; equipment inventory control; vendor inventory; and equipment acquisition, transfer, and retirement. The advantages of computer applications are now available to any size school district through a variety of computer sharing plans. The use of computers for routine procedures frees the purchasing agent for a more creative role in administration. (RA)
