Pittsburgh Public Schools ‘Operations Extravaganza’

November 7 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am


You are cordially invited to attend


We are excited to share an upcoming business networking event that will take place on Thursday, November 7, 2019 at 8:30am.  The Minority/Women Business is hosting an ‘Operations Extravaganza’.  We are teaming with the various departments that comprise our PPS Operations Division by inviting vendors in to speak to, share with and learn from those who have decision-making authority in those departments. Those departments include:


FACILITIES (construction related services and commodities, A/E firms)

FOOD SERVICES (perishable and non-perishable commodities)

MAINTENANCE  (stocking distributors with 1-2 day response)

MINORITY/WOMEN BUSINESS (promotional items, supplier diversity software, compliance consultants)

PLANT OPERATIONS (janitorial equipment and commodities)

PUPIL TRANSPORTATION (transportation firms)

SCHOOL SAFETY (security equipment, body armor, metal detectors, uniforms)


Our morning will include a forecast of contract opportunities including our 2020 Capital Projects.  We will also have a special presentation focusing on ‘building relationships’ from the University of Pittsburgh’s Innovation Institute.
