Due to the overwhelming demand for mobile devices throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, several models have been unexpectedly delayed with no set recovery timeline. The latest analysis indicates AMD processors and touch panels as the most negatively affected components, thereby causing the greatest delays on 2-in-1 devices with AMD processors. Lead times on laptops may be 8 - 10 weeks.


Doing Business with APS (Vendors)

To protect the staff and program against undue invasion of the school or work day, sales representatives shall not be permitted in schools or other departments for the purpose of making sales unless authorized to do so by the Director of Materials Management or his/her designee. If special or technical details concerning goods or services to be purchased are required, the involvement of vendors should be coordinated through the Purchasing Department. Vendors may send product information through U.S. mail. The schools names and addresses are listed on the District web site at http://aurorak12.org/docs/school-address.pdf.


Aurora Public Schools utilizes the Rocky Mountain Bid System. Please see below for additional information:
