The cooperative purchasing service represents 23 school districts and administers 25 individual bids that represent over 5,000 commodities.

In addition to the standard bids, the office will also process requests for unique bids.

There are advisory committees for the various bids made up of participating districts.

The advisory committees provide ongoing feedback for improving the various bids - whether it be the frequency of the bid, the inclusion or exclusion of various commodities or the timing of the bid.
