Save time and money with TIPS

The TIPS program provides a purchasing coop in which awarded vendors and members both benefit.  With a successful award, a vendor can expedite an order for a member, because all purchasing requirements are completed during the RFP process.  A school district or other member can gain the cost savings of time and expense in competitively bidding each purchase.

  • Efficiency and economy in acquiring goods and services
  • Advanced purchasing procedures ensure competitive contracts
  • Competitively priced solicitation and bulk purchasing for multiple entities, with benefits for taxpayers
  • Quick and efficient response from high performance vendors
