PAISBOA Purchasing Consortium

PAISBOA Members! Visit our Members-Only Intranet Page to view a list of approved vendors.

The PAISBOA 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.

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.
