The Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA) – established in 2000 – is a unique school procurement representing twenty-nine (29) states that can sell nationwide.
AEPA’s mission is to cooperatively serve members through a continuous effort to explore and solve present and future purchasing needs. Through partnerships, AEPA vendors have access to thousands of public agencies across the country. AEPA is a multi-million-dollar procurement group through our current awarded and growing vendors.
AEPA designates one Member Agency per state that is operating legally under the rules and regulations of that state. While the consortium was initially created to support educational entities, the Member Agency for each state determines which public entities (higher educational institutions, cities, counties, townships, states, etc.) can utilize the competitively solicited contracts. Participating entities may include Public and Private School Districts, Educational Service Agencies, Intermediate School Districts, Higher Education Institutions, Federal Agencies, State Agencies, Local Public Bodies, and Nonprofit Non-Public Corporations, Organizations, and other entities. https://www.aepacoop.org
