Purchasing

All purchasing by Knox County employees is completed through the MUNIS financial management software.  Requisitions entered by employees are routed through principal, director, and superintendent approval before a purchase order is released and the purchase may be made.

Log in to MUNIS from your school or office computer

A purchasing manual has been created to help guide new users through the requisition process.
