E&I Cooperative Services (E&I) is excited to serve as the Group Purchasing Organization Services provider for members of the Coalition for College Cost Savings (CCCS).

E&I is the member-owned, not-for-profit sourcing cooperative delivering expertise, solutions and services to higher education and related institutions. The Cooperative leverages the knowledge and expertise of over 3,500 institutions to deliver a robust and proven solicitation program that connects members with best-in-class competitively awarded contracts to help them reduce costs and optimize supply chain efficiencies. In addition to up-front pricing discounts, E&I provides lower costs to members in the form of rebates and/or financial incentives, as well as through the distribution of patronage refunds at the end of the year.

CCCS and E&I share a commitment to collaboration and true belief in the power of cooperative purchasing. As part of this agreement, CCCS members and their member institutions have access to the additional buying leverage available through the Cooperative's extensive contract portfolio. Many CCCS members and institutions are already enjoying the benefits available through E&I, and we are hopeful this alliance will only increase the opportunities for savings.
