Bid Opportunities
This year, the 23 member school districts collaborated and successfully bid products and services in a wide range of areas: computers, audiovisual equipment, copy paper, waste management, custodial products, office and classroom supplies, food services and school buses. School districts benefited with reduced costs, improved services, and time savings.
The CIESC membership is also able to increase savings now through K12Indiana. A partnership between the State of Indiana and Educational Service Centers, K-12 Indiana gives every K-12 public school the purchasing advantage of statewide-negotiated contracts, organized into convenient online catalogs, all on one easy-to-use website.
