Cooperative Purchasing

Co-Ser 608

Ulster BOCES provides leadership and coordination for its component districts through its competitive bidding service. This service allows component districts to bid cooperatively on items, thereby saving on legal advertisements, preparation of specifications, postage, clerical costs, and above all – cost of products and services. All component districts may participate in cooperative bids for items including but not limited to general supplies, art supplies, custodial supplies, cafeteria supplies, and food services items. Ulster BOCES coordinates cooperative bids by working with school district representatives to meet their purchasing needs and interfaces with vendors to ensure the highest standards of service delivery.
