Technology Purchasing

The purchasing of technology in Kentucky schools is constrained by specific rules and procedures. There are two rules that have the most impact.

First, if a type of technology (i.e. computer, laser printer, etc.) has a KETS contract established, then schools and districts MUST purchase that technology off of the KETS contract, REGARDLESS of funding source. The current KETS contracts can always be found at:

Current KETS Contracts

Second, all technology purchases MUST have a commodity code assigned to each line item. It is the responsibility of the requestor to look up the commodity codes for each line item and record those codes on the purchase requisition. Technology commodity codes can be downloaded at right hand menu
