BuyBoard Purchasing Cooperative
The BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative is an audit compliant, free, governmental based national cooperative formed between the National School Boards Association (NSBA) and several state school boards associations to streamline the buying process for schools, municipalities, and other public entities. Developed to comply with state laws that require governmental entities to make purchases from an approved list of vendors who have gone through a competitive procurement process, BuyBoard gives members the advantage of leveraging the Cooperative's ability to obtain discounts, reducing purchasing costs on products and services.
The BuyBoard has a long history and a high-level approach to our business, our members and our vendors that make us stand apart. The goal of the BuyBoard is to lessen the burden of government by driving down costs and making the procurement process more efficient all-the-while being audit compliant. Included below are a few highlights of the program:
• 24-year history
• Local government agency controlling the life cycle of all contracts
• Gains access to a wide range of vendors with pricing based on national volume levels
• Non-profit that helps provide funding to enhance public education
• Outreach to local, regional and MWBE vendors to participate
• Available for EDGAR (CFR) Federal Funding use
