National Purchasing Cooperative

IASB Sponsored Program:


BuyBoard is a national online purchasing cooperative sponsored by the Illinois Association of School Boards. The combined purchasing power of the Cooperative provides participating school districts access to the cooperative’s ability to leverage better pricing from vendors in addition to reducing administrative and resource time. Additional savings can be realized by using the online RFQ (request for quote) function available through the BuyBoard.

All IASB member districts are eligible to become free members of the cooperative.
