Nationally Bid, Locally Awarded
Purchasing expertise at your fingertips with benefits that are measurable, cost-effective and continuously exceed expectations.
In 2006, Oakland Schools partnered with the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), a group of Educational Service Agencies and political subdivisions organized for the purpose of establishing a universal bid and awarded operating contract. AEPA's mission is to cooperatively serve qualified agency memberships (26 in the U.S.) through a continuous effort to explore and solve present and future purchasing needs. AEPA works on the behalf of members to secure multi-state volume purchasing contracts with benefits that are measurable, cost-effective and continuously exceed expectations.
