Thank you for your interest in serving Anoka-Hennepin Schools with your products and services. If you're a vendor interested in participating in future solicitations, please complete the Vendor Application Form. If further questions or information are needed the Procurement Department will contact you.
Due to limited resources in Procurement, the department is unable to meet with all vendors that reach out. As resources allow, our department will try to implement more ways to interact with vendors.
Public auction - District surplus
The Anoka-Hennepin School District recycles supplies and equipment by accepting items that are no longer being used in a school or department and making them available to other district sites. If an item cannot be used within the district, it will be offered to the public through Public Surplus, an online auction service. The sale or disposal of items purchased with school district funds must be done in cooperation with the Manager of Purchasing, in accordance with Minnesota law. This includes, but is not limited to, equipment, furniture, and classroom furnishings. Please contact the Anoka-Hennepin Purchasing Department at 763-506-1300 if you have any questions.
Auctions can be viewed and bid on by visiting PublicSurplus.com and clicking on View All Auctions for Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District.
