Disclaimer: I don't have a DISD P-Card

The latest issue being attacked at DISD is the P-Card, or procurement card program. I actually have a friend that has one -- she teaches the business variety of Coop along with other things.

I get things the old fashioned way. I get a budget with x amount of dollars, I spent it, mostly through the warehouse (there is a better name for that), and through Office Depot. Mostly paper, toner, blank CDs and a few electronic items to make my students life a bit better. I have purchased a scanner, hard drives for our server, and a few other things. I also get books through Borders.

It takes several months to get the items after I ordered them and I always lose a bit of money in the budget, any left overs are put in the general fund and occasionally I'll get to order items from that.
