Purchasing & Vendor Management
The Los Alamos Public Schools Business Services Department is responsible for procurement of all tangible goods, services and construction for the District. All purchases are initiated through the issuance of a Purchase Order, approved by the District Chief Procurement Officer. Vendors may not proceed with providing goods or services to the District without an approved Purchase Order.
Los Alamos Public Schools is required to obtain a completed and signed W-9 from vendors to document the form of business ownership. If Los Alamos Public Schools does not pay a vendor at least $600 for services in a calendar year, or the IRS does not require it due to the form of ownership disclosed on the W-9, no 1099 will be issued. Vendors may provide a W-9 by email to firstname.lastname@example.org; by fax to (505) 663-2254; or by USPS mail to Los Alamos Public Schools, Purchasing & Accounts Payable, P.O. Box 90, 2075 Trinity Drive, Los Alamos, NM. 87544.
Los Alamos Public Schools is exempt from tax on purchases of tangible personal property. New Mexico Type 9 Non Taxable Transaction Certificates are available from Maria Elena Salazar at email@example.com. A New Mexico CRS Number is required to obtain the certificate. For non New Mexico vendors, the Federal Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN) will be used.
