The BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative streamlines the purchasing process for schools, municipalities, and other public entities across the nation—and membership is free!
Contracts and vendors awarded through BuyBoard have been competitively procured, so members automatically have compliance with local and state procurement requirements and a documented audit trail. Transparency in the procurement process is treated with a high degree of focus and is of paramount importance. All vendors are treated on equal terms and are on the same plane of competition.
The BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative is governed by an eight-member board of directors composed of participating members. The board’s only function is to govern the Cooperative and award all contracts directly with no delegation of authority to staff.
Support of public education and local governments
BuyBoard was created to support and serve public schools, municipalities, counties, and all types of local government agencies and nonprofits. That support and service is evidenced in the list of organizations that sponsor the program and in turn support their respective membership.
