Backed by the combined purchasing power of 4,500 colleges, universities, prep schools, K-12 schools, teaching hospitals and medical research institutions, we deliver lower costs on a variety of products and services.
Our diverse portfolio of competitively awarded contracts covers technology, furniture, maintenance, scientific supplies, office products, transportation and delivery services, and much more. Last year alone, our members collectively saved over $200 million using E&I contracts.
We’re Here From Start to Finish
We handle the complete RFP process, from research and bid preparation development through contract management. This means your staff has considerably more time to focus on other key initiatives. Our Competitive RFP Process has been developed specifically for your needs, by member volunteer experts from across the country.
Our ultimate goal is to help you achieve lower costs while providing you with increased value. How do we accomplish this?
- Ensure that our contracts meet applicable procurement standards;
- Establish best practices to reduce total costs; and
- Conduct spend analysis across our membership.
This allows us to identify products, services, and supply partners that are the most meaningful in particular contracting areas.
