RRPS Business Information
Doing Business with Rio Rancho Public Schools
Selling goods and services to the Rio Rancho School District is very much a "two way street" where the taxpayers of New Mexico are willing to pay for jobs well done. The school district cannot operate without the goods and services of private businesses.
Through your participation in the open competition for sales, we benefit from improved quality at lower prices. We hope that your participation will result in sales in a new market. If you decide to participate in an RFP or ITB, by law, we cannot help you prepare your proposal or bid. We can, however, answer questions to help you better understand what is required.
NOTE: Choosing to not respond to an RFP or ITB does not jeopardize a vendor's standing with Rio Rancho Public Schools. Additionally, a business does not have to be an active vendor in the RRPS data base in order to participate in an RFP or ITB. They do, however, have to become an approved vendor in order to do business with RRPS.
As an entity of the Government of the State of New Mexico, RRPS adheres to the New Mexico State Procurement Code.
All purchases for goods and services require a fully authorized Purchase Order (PO) to be in place prior to any goods being purchased or services rendered.
As the PO is a binding contract, if there is any change to the original PO description, terms or conditions, the vendor must receive a modified purchase order prior to the change being implimented.
If a vendor has any questions, they may contact the RRPS Purchasing Specialist or the RRPS Director of Accounting.
Becoming an approved Vendor with RRPS
New Vendor approval and setup are order-driven. A business interested in becoming an approved vendor with RRPS must complete the following three forms:
(1) * Vendor Information Request
(2) * W-9, which must be signed and dated
(3) Vendor Registration
* For prospective vendors for whom an order is currently pending, or vendors in inactive status, only the Vendor Information Request and W-9 forms are necessary. The Vendor Registration is not required.
Submit the completed forms electronically, via fax or email, to either your point of contact within RRPS, or to the RRPS Purchasing Specialist; contact information is below.
Fax: (505) 891-1357
If you have questions, you may phone the Purchasing Agent at (505)896-0667, Ext: 51238.Once the forms are received, they will be reviewed by the Purchasing Specialist. Assuming all information requested has been provided, the documents will be processed accordingly. For businesses that are not approved vendors and have no pending order, the documents will be placed in a Vendor Hold File. When a District Department or School Site has a pending order from the business, an internal RRPS procedure is initiated by the requesting RRPS Department/Site, which will complete the New Vendor Setup process.
