New Ways To Buy: School Districts Explore Innovative Approaches to Purchasing.
Chan, Tak Cheung
American School Board Journal, v188 n4 p44-49 Apr 2001
A survey of 145 schools found that all had experimented with innovative purchasing approaches. Many used electronic methods, such as credit-card, fast-track requisition (most popular), bidding and purchasing, and data interchange. Results suggest that nonelectronic innovations (just-in-time, cooperative, direct, and consortium leverage purchasing) be tried first. (MLH)
