    Jerrel Wade honored as outstanding alumnus 

    Congratulations to Dr. Jerrel Wade, Dean of Administration at the North Campus, who was recently recognized in the University of Houston College of Education newsletter as an outstanding alumnus. Each edition of their newsletter features a graduate who is making a contribution to the field of education.

    Dr. Wade

    Dr. Wade

    Dean Wade holds an Ed.D. in Administration and Supervision from UH. He also holds a bachelor’s degree, and a master’s degree in education from the University of Oklahoma.

    Dr. Wade began work for San Jacinto College in 2006 as the South Campus Coordinator of Student Life. In 2008, he became the Director of Recruitment Initiatives for the District. In 2013, he assumed his current role as Dean of Administration.

    Dr. Wade was surprised, but honored when he learned of his outstanding alumnus recognition. “It’s always a good feeling to be recognized for your efforts,” he commented. “I was nominated by Dr. Lyle McKinney, who was one of my professors at UH. He also served as my program advisor and dissertation chair.”

    Dr. Wade and his wife Alicia have been married 10 years, and they have a 7-year-old son named Jonathan.

    Jerrel says education has played a role in every success in his life, directly or indirectly. “I’ve had the opportunity to present at, and travel to, various conferences around the country, and by doing so I have met and worked with amazing people in the field,” he said. “My commitment to education shaped my career path, which has now allowed me to give back and help guide students to make the most of their opportunities. In short, I love what I do and look forward to many more years helping students achieve their goals, however I can.”

    Important purchasing update 

    Ann Kokx-Templet, Director of Contracts and Purchasing Servicies, states there is a new requirement which requires all purchases utilizing TXMAS contracts to be manually entered into a separate online ordering system called TX SmartBuy.  This ordering system does not interface with Banner and the use of standing POs is not allowed.

    In light of this new development, the purchasing staff is diligently seeking alternate sourcing options to utilize in lieu of the TXMAS cooperative contracts.   We hope to find competitively bid contracts  awarded through other cooperative agencies with whom we have agreements, but that may not always be an available option.  We will utilize all of our purchasing resources to find the best overall value for the goods and services you need and communicate our findings with the respective parties.

    If we are unable to locate an alternate cooperative contract, we will initiate our own informal or formal quote process in order to comply with procurement law and College procedures.

    Effective immediately we will begin migrating away from the use of all TXMAS contracts.    The College may still utilize some TXMAS contracts, but approval to do so will only be authorized on a case by case basis due to the duplicated manpower required to manually enter orders line by line into the SmartBuy system.

    We will continually update the Board Approval summary located on the Exchange with new cooperative contract information as it becomes available.

    Due to the breadth of vendor contracts this effects, I am requesting your assistance.  When you speak with TXMAS contract vendor representatives, inquire if their firm has a contract(s) awarded by other cooperative purchasing agencies and share that information with the Purchasing department.  You may send it directly to the buyer who handles the commodity or email contracts.purchasing@sjcd.edu.

    I have appealed to the Director of the TXMAS contracts program for an exemption to this new requirement, but my request was denied.  (He stated UT’s exemption request was also denied.)  I apologize for any  inconvenience this may cause your department and I appreciate your understanding while we migrate away from the use of TXMAS contracts.
