School Safety Contracts

​Overview

Tragic events involving violence in communities across the country have prompted school administrators to confront the challenges of preventing and suppressing violence in K-12 institutions. Educational leaders and public safety officials are considering a wide range of options that include the purchase of supplies, equipment and services needed to strengthen the physical security of schools.

On March 15, 2018, Governor Scott Walker issued Executive Order 279 directing the Department of Administration, State Bureau of Procurement to assist school districts by making available state contracts that provide security and safety supplies, equipment and services at competitively-bid prices and advantageous terms. This website was created in conjunction with Governor Walker’s $100 million School Safety Plan. 

The State Bureau of Procurement is carrying out Governor Walker's directive by:

  • Consulting with school and public safety officials on security and safety purchasing needs.
  • Providing links to relevant state contracts in one convenient location on this website.
  • Creating new contractual resources to provide a wider range of necessary equipment, supplies and services.
  • Encouraging vendors to extend state pricing and terms to private schools in Wisconsin.

The State Bureau of Procurement welcomes participation in this important initiative by vendors, public and private school administrators and public safety officials. Please use the feedback section of this website to offer comments and questions. In addition, please register to receive updates as new contractual resources are added to the site.

School districts are advised that contracts listed on this site offer safety and security solutions that may be purchased with most funding sources. However, not all products or services are eligible for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, School Safety Program. Please see the Resources tab for a link to more information about the grant program.

The Department of Administration appreciates the opportunity and privilege to help make all schools safer for Wisconsin's children and teachers.

 Benefits of State Contracts

The Wisconsin State Bureau of Procurement uses competitive processes to establish statewide contracts for materials, supplies, equipment and services to support the needs of state government. These contracts cover a wide range of needs, but for those that are agency-specific, state agencies and UW campuses also establish contracts that may be of use to other entities (piggybacking). All these contracts adhere to Wisconsin procurement laws and policy, while driving cost savings and beneficial outcomes for the state.

Wisconsin Statutes §16.73 establishes the authority to allow Wisconsin municipalities to purchase from these state contracts, including public schools. Many of the state’s suppliers offer the same contract terms and discounts to municipalities, extending the benefits of these competitively solicited contracts.

Benefits include:

  • Lower pricing
  • Standard terms and conditions
  • Consistent warranties and customer service requirements
  • Vigilant stewardship of taxpayer funds
  • Public confidence using consistent and transparent processes

Contract customers also benefit from the support and service of State Bureau of Procurement professionals that manage these contracts and supplier relationships.
