Purchasing Consortium

The Purchasing Consortium began operations in 1998 with the commitment of 30 schools that wanted to achieve savings through collective purchasing. The goal was -- and still is --  to assure quality products with a consistent high level of service.

New For 2019

Beginning in 2019, ALL PAISBOA member schools are now eligible for discounted pricing on goods and services through the PAISBOA Purchasing Consortium. Members, you too have the ability to leverage our resources for budget stability, and help save you time -- and more importantly -- money for your school!

Benefits include:

  • Savings of both time and money. No need to take cold-calls or research for best price.
  • All vendors are thoroughly pre-screened for best in class in terms of quality of service as well as price.
  • Oversight committee of Purchasing Consortium vets vendors for you.
  • Commitment to consortium helps all schools to benefit from special discounted rates.
  • Contracts with current vendors are periodically reviewed and re-bid.
  • If a vendor does not meet the high standards set by the committee, they will not be included in the re-bid process.
