    Plano ISD Purchasing Department utilizes an electronic bidding system called Ionwave for our bids.  Vendors interested in working with Plano ISD, are invited to register as a supplier with Ionwave.  Prospective vendors will indicate what products and/or services they are interested in providing to Plano ISD. This allows vendors to receive email notifications when the District issues new proposals.
