Marysville Joint Unified School District employees should never sign a contract supplied by a
vendor. Please reference the Contracts and Agreements section of this manual for specific
instructions for handling contracts.
Vendors are selected for their capability to serve the needs of the District by providing quality
products in the most economical and efficient manner possible. Past performance and service after
the sale are important factors. Factors considered when evaluating a vendor include, but are not
Quality/Durability of product
Warranty and/or customer service
Credit, freight, and delivery terms
Gifts and Free Materials Policy
No District employee or Board member shall accept personal gifts or commissions from individuals
or companies selling equipment, materials, or services required in the operation of District
programs. Gifts include any item purchased specifically for an individual employee which is not
generally offered to others.
This policy does not prohibit employees from accepting promotional or advertising items such as
calendars, desk pads, and other office gadgets which are offered by businesses and are free to all as
part of their public relations/promotional programs.
District employees who work for, or serve as consultants for, potential vendors shall not participate
in evaluating any equipment, materials or services of that vendor or its competitors.
This policy does not prohibit the acceptance of materials and/or services which are of use and
benefit to the District. These items, if accepted, immediately become property of the District. This
includes promotional or “free with purchase” items received.
