MESSAGE TO VENDORS/ REDUCED OPERATIONS RELATED TO COVID-19
With constantly evolving developments and growing uncertainties over the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), public agencies are reviewing their options to protect their workforce and stakeholders by limiting exposure and transmission of the virus. After a great deal of careful consideration, we have limited our staff in the Purchasing Department, Warehouse and closed our Accounting offices. Accounting staff will be working remotely until further notice. Purchasing is requesting all orders be redirected to the district warehouse located at 4498 N. Brawley due to the temporary shutdown of district campuses and facilities. Deliveries to the warehouse will be accepted between the hours of 7:00 AM – 12:00 PM Pacific Standard Time until further notice.
Our vendors are very important to us and we want you to know that we are working to process payments during this shutdown. Going forward, please email all invoices, statements and questions to the Accounts.Payable@fresnounified.org in order for our department to properly assist you. All our payments not set with our VISA card program are going to be mailed out via United States Postal Service.
At this time we do not offer Automated Clearing House/Electronic Funds Transfer payments, but vendors have the option of enrolling in our Visa card program through Commerce Bank. This program allows vendors to receive payment in the form of an online VISA card instead of a standard check. Please see the Vendor Enrollment Form below if you are interested in enrolling in this program. If your company is interested in more information on this program, please email Accounts.Payable@fresnounified.org with your request and the department supervisor will assist in getting you more information.
Purchasing responsibilities include the centralized procurement of all supplies, materials, equipment, services and construction projects funded through Fresno Unified School District. The Purchasing Services program budget includes costs of operation for the Centralized Warehouse, Intradistrict Mail Service, the Graphics Department, and centralized funding for copiers. We can be reached by phone at 559-457-3588 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:45 p.m. and by fax at 559-457-6040. Deliveries are accepted at the Nutrition Center until 2:00 p.m.
