Purchasing

This service provides leadership and coordination for component school districts, municipalities and counties in cooperative bidding. Representatives of the school districts and agencies work with BOCES personnel to develop standard specifications for necessary items. BOCES then prepares proposals and bids, solicits vendors to bid, requests samples as needed and coordinates the analysis and decision making process for cooperative bids. Savings are generated not only from the millions of dollars saved, but also from the time saved by the individual participants.
