At its most recent meeting, members of the Bossier Parish School Board unanimously adopted a resolution of support to give priority to local businesses that maintain a physical presence in Bossier Parish or adjacent parishes.

While not applicable to bids, BPSB authorized the Chief Procurement Officer the ability to include use of local purchase option, benchmarking and negotiation when awarding contracts for goods and vendor services as allowed by state law.BPSB Logo

The Board values the economic contribution provided by businesses owned by Bossier Parish residents, that employ Bossier Parish residents and/or maintain a location within the boundaries of the parish.

The resolution of support for local businesses, passed October 15, 2015, is now in full effect.
