The Finance Department oversees the purchase of goods and services for the Stamford Public Schools. The department currently consists of Vivens Joachim (Purchasing Agent) and Jeannie Valentine (Office Support Specialist).

The chief function of the department is to ensure that standard procedures are followed in procuring goods and services for all of the schools and departments of the Stamford Public Schools. The activities of the department are guided by the Purchasing Ordinance which spells out regulations governing purchasing and was passed as legislation by the City's legislative body, the Board of Representatives.

The department is usually the first point of contact that vendors and potential vendors have with the District before doing business with any particular department or school.
