Hoover High Wood Shop, Strategic Sourcing Department Show Excellence

Cabinet and awards A trophy case built by students at Hoover High's new Green Construction Technology facility is now helping improve morale and show off the excellence of San Diego Unified's Strategic Sourcing and Contracts Department.

The case contains some of the annual awards won by the department, which handles purchasing and contract duties for the district, including:

  • National Purchasing Institute Achievement of Excellence in Procurement for 2010, 2011, 2012;
  • Fully Certified Agency Award from the Universal Public Purchasing Certification Council, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012.

The Strategic Sourcing and Contracts Department annually saves the district hundreds of thousands of dollars by seeking out the lowest price for materials ranging from pencils to pickled pigs (used in science classes).
