Let us help you 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, school buses, and so much more.
CIESC’s Region 9 Food Service Purchasing Cooperative is a nationally recognized purchasing cooperative as well as the largest K-12 food and product-purchasing agent in Indiana. This cooperative ensures all products meet USDA guidelines for school nutrition while monitoring changes in legislature and food trends.
With cooperation from school bus vendors, the CIESC designed a web based bus purchasing program in which all Indiana school districts can take advantage of group purchasing, regardless of the size of their order. A district ordering one bus gets the same price as a district ordering 20 buses. This program will save you time when ordering new buses.
All Statewide contracts for Microsoft software are administered out of the East Central ESC in Indiana. By making purchases together, CIESC members lower the costs and increase their buying power. Visit their website for more information.

This year, the 25 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.
