Coop Purchasing

Let Coop Purchasing help you lower your selling cost and successfully bid products and services in a wide range of areas.

K12 Indiana e-Procurement Portal

Coop Purchasing’s K12 Indiana e-procurement portal offers schools an easy and efficient one-stop shop for necessary technology, classroom, and office supplies. The online catalogs offer products like furniture, library supplies, A.V. supplies and equipment, janitorial products, and so much more. You can also integrate financials to save even more time. Our cooperative purchasing agreement services bring cooperative buying power together to allow us to help you with bids, RFPs, and more.

School Buses

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.
