How does your school handle purchases?
I work for a small high school in California, USA. I'm the IT Admin. and the only IT related staff at the school. I know this is a UK based board but I'm still curious as to how other schools handle purchases in similar environments and even at larger schools as well. It's a bit difficult for me to make purchases and I understand someone needs to review purchases but it seems a bit overly complicated at my school. I want to see if I could improve the situation.
I'm talking about purchases like website host subscriptions, domain subscriptions, replacing broken power adapters for laptops when out of warranty, getting replacement keyboards and mice for staff, etc.
