    Crowley ISD Purchasing Division is proud to announce that we will now be using Public Purchase, a FREE web-based bid notification system. In order to begin, or continue to, receive bid notifications as a current vendor, you must register with this new system. This process will only take a few minutes. The two-step registration process/instructions are detailed below in the Instructions section.

    We will make the move to use Public Purchase web-based bid notification effective 2/21/19. Please register as soon as possible so that you have uninterrupted access and notification of our bids.
