Frequently Asked Questions
Granbury ISD has both a vendor database and an awarded/approved vendor list. A vendor may request their company name be added to the vendor data base at any time. The data base is a listing of companies or individuals seeking to do business with Granbury ISD. The information is kept on file for future bid or proposal opportunities.
The awarded/approved vendor list is a listing of vendors that have been awarded a specific category of goods or services through the bid or proposal process and a contract has been awarded to them by the Granbury ISD Board of Trustees. Additional vendor names may not be added during the contract period.
A bid is a formal process defined in Texas Education Code TEC §44.031. All Granbury ISD bids and proposals are advertised in a newspaper in the county where the district administrative offices are located as required by state law. Granbury ISD advertises in the Hood County News. You may request a copy of any specific bid or proposal by faxing your request to 817-408-4033, or by downloading the document from the district’s purchasing web page link.
Your company will be notified if you were a successful bidder by written notification after the bid or proposal has been awarded by the Granbury ISD Board of Trustees.

Yes. At the designated date and time for the opening for competitive sealed bids, the vendor names and the dollar amounts bid will be called. All interested vendors are invited to attend. For competitive sealed proposals, as some additional negotiation is possible that may affect the price, only the names of the bidders/vendors will be called or identified at the opening date and time. The monetary amount will not be made public until after the contract has been awarded by the Board of Trustees.
No. The district does not accept bids that are submitted after the deadline date and time for any reason. It is against local district policy to do so.
No. In determining “best value” for the district, the district is not restricted to considering price alone. The evaluation criteria identified in Texas Education Code §44.031 along with any additional criteria specifically listed in the bid or proposal document shall be considered.
A district may not award a contract solely based on the fact that a bidder is a local resident. The guidelines for local preference are addressed in Local Government Code 271.9051 and referenced in Texas Education Code 44.031(b) (b-1).
