New York State’s Freedom of Information Law, or FOIL, governs the right of access to certain public records, decisions and policies, including those of school districts. The law also provides instruction on what information is available and how to request it. Requests should state that information is being sought under the Freedom of Information Law and provide a brief and specific description of the information sought. To request City School District of Albany records, please contact our Records Access Officer:
The City School District of Albany periodically issues requests for proposals (RFPs) to purchase high-quality goods and services at the best possible prices from vendors outside the school district.
The district partners with Empire State Purchasing Group to more effectively notify vendors of RFP and bid opportunities. This increases efficiency and lowers costs for our organization and our community through shared resources. The procurement solution delivers convenient, centralized online access to open bid opportunities. Please follow the link above to access the district's portal to the Empire State Purchasing Group system.
For more information, please contact the Purchasing Office at (518) 475-6050.
