The Southeast Texas Purchasing Coop, which is administered by Region 5 ESC, has added a new category for its coop members to use. It is called “Job Order Contracts” or JOC. This is for our members to use for repairs, remodeling, renovations and some construction programs. Coop members can go to the pull down menu, click on it, and see the all the approved vendors available for their use. If you have any questions please contact Jean Kyle, Purchasing Coordinator at 409-951-1782 or email@example.com.
Cooperative buying can provide lower prices and better quality for school districts. Region 5 Education Service Center acts as the coordinator for this cooperative and facilitates the process needed for it to be successful.
The Board of Trustees for a cooperating district approves a resolution to join and the district provides the service center with the necessary data on products and amounts to be purchased. All district requests are combined in order to bid the products in large volume, thus encouraging a lower unit price.
The Cooperative’s Steering Committee determines which categories of products and services are to be bid during the school year.
