CESA Purchasing

From food service to SMART Boards, Cooperative Purchasing saves schools money.

CESA Purchasing
By combining purchasing power, schools can obtain substantial volume discounts on technology, paper, office supplies, and more. CESA Purchasing makes it easy for districts to take advantage of discounts and deals already negotiated by CESA. Most of our contracts are offered at no cost, with regional and state-wide contracts available.
