Obtain a CPS Principal, CPS Network Chief, or CPS Department Director Level Sponsorship
If a School, Network or Department has the intent to use your goods or services, they must reach out to Procurement to begin the process. To get started, the sponsoring CPS Principal, CPS Network Chief, or CPS Department Director should contact Procurement at firstname.lastname@example.org with an email, subject heading "Vendor Sponsorship Application Request." Please note: This process must be initiated by the Principal, Network Chief, or Department Director, not the vendor.
Once sponsorship information has been submitted by a Principal, Chief or Director, the Procurement team will review the vendor sponsorship request. If the sponsorship is accepted, a CPS Supplier Application will be sent to the prospective vendor for completion. If the sponsorship request is not accepted, Procurement will notify the sponsor with a reason for the rejection. Only applications sent directly by Procurement will be processed. Please note: This process must also be followed for vendors who need to be reactivated for a school or department to use.
