The NH Division of Procurement and Support Services (DPSS) has developed the following guidance pertaining to personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitation supply requests made to the State from representatives of the Department of Education (DOE). These guidelines will be followed to ensure timely service delivery of desired PPE/sanitation supplies to DOE K-12 Schools.
DPSS has negotiated and established contracts and Blanket Purchase Orders, (POs) for these purposes. See table below for reference. Click on the contract # for the item you want to order for all detailed information. The vendor contact, phone, and email are provided if you have questions.
K-12 schools are encouraged to consolidate orders by District to maximize aggregate volume. Provisions should be in place to ensure timely planning and execution for PPE/sanitation supply replenishment. It is further recommended that all Districts reorder a minimum of 30-days prior to anticipate depletion of on hand inventory. Some vendors will be able to provide products before schools start, but others may not. Please determine if the delivery time is acceptable before purchasing. If you have trouble identifying a vendor that can meet your needs, please contact us for assistance.
For products not available under the State Contracts listed below:
- The school will submit a request through this link: Contact Form Be sure that sufficient details are provided; including detailed product description, quantity required, urgency of need, delivery date and point of contact for questions so we can coordinate with you on it.

- The school will close the loop with DPSS via email to confirm order placement.
