The Cooperative Purchasing program began in September 1976 at the Southeast Kansas Regional Educational Service Center located in Erie, KS and was one of the three original programs. Since that time, our department also know as Purchasing/Procurement has assisted school districts in reducing the cost of educational resources through cost-effective, cooperative purchasing. By utilizing pre-bid contracts, Kansas school districts have the ability to utilize approved contracts and vendors while taking advantage of having the cumbersome bidding process completed.
Pre-bid contracts meet all current Kansas bid law requirements.
Services we offer:
Greenbush Procurement/Cooperative Purchasing services include pre-bid national contracts through Greenbush's membership in the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), pre-bid statewide, regional, and line-item contracts, and negotiated pricing through corporate business partnerships.
The Southeast Kansas Education Service Bid Advisory Committee oversees the awarding of all bids. Proving quality product and saving schools money has always
been their first priority.
