Project Services

The PAEC Cooperative State Purchasing Program saves school district staff time and money by offering a wide array of pre-bid products and services. In 2016 the PAEC cooperative purchasing agency was recognized in State Statute as an acceptable alternative to utilizing DMS! PAEC is Florida’s designated representative with the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA) and, as such, can provide schools, school districts, and other government and non-profit organizations, extraordinary discounts on products and services.  In addition, if a district has a specific need for a product or service not presently offered through the program, PAEC responds quickly to acquire new purchasing agreements and alternative contracts to meet the district’s specific need for products or services. The cooperative purchasing website located at www.Floridabuy.org provides easy access to product inventory, pricing, contact information, and bid documents.
