Cooperative Procurement Programs

Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA)

The Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies' (AEPA) mission is to cooperatively serve its agency memberships through a continuous effort to explore and solve present and future purchasing needs. AEPA’s goals include working on behalf of its agencies to secure multi-state volume purchasing contracts that have benefits that are measurable, cost-effective and continuously exceed AEPA’s membership expectations.

Fairfax County Public Schools is one of 26 member agencies from around the country in AEPA. Through AEPA, Fairfax County Public Schools is able to offer competitive contracts and vendors.

AEPA’s goals are:

  • Leverage the purchase power to benefit all schools regardless of size, with the ability to purchase at equal buying levels.
  • Combine the potential needs of all schools to create an incentive to vendors to offer the best price and the highest quality product in the country.
  • Streamline the bidding and purchasing process through a locally and nationally recognized legal purchasing solicitation (thus saving districts the time and money of having to do so themselves).

AEPA contracts are pre-bid to enable districts to leverage buying power for better pricing and time savings. Many Virginia school districts can use cooperative purchasing vehicles such as AEPA to achieve their purchasing objectives without the need for further bidding. Each entrusted district should review its own purchasing policies to ensure compliance prior to purchasing through the AEPA cooperative purchasing method.  AEPA is also available to local governments and institutions for higher education.

If you have any questions about AEPA, please contact Michelle Pratt at 571-423-3571.
