Photographers who are interested in providing any or all of the above photography services to the Puyallup School District must:

4)       When chosen by a school to provide services, sign a District Photography Contract (supplied by the school).

Vendor Approval Process

The Purchasing Department will carefully review the documents submitted by the vendor including the questionnaire, references, photographic samples and photo CD and/or ASB card samples (if necessary).

The Purchasing Department will contact the vendor once they have been approved.  The vendor will then be added to each of the vendor list(s) below for which they have been approved.
