About the BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative
BuyBoard was formed by the National School Boards Association and several member associations to support and serve public schools, municipalities, counties, and all types of local government agencies and nonprofits.
BuyBoard is a national governmental purchasing cooperative who has contracts with approved local, regional, and national vendors for commonly purchased products helping entities receive the same or better discounts/pricing than they give their best governmental clients. BuyBoard streamlines the buying process for school districts saving time and resources for school district personnel.
Developed to comply with state laws that require governmental entities to make purchases from an approved list of vendors who have gone through a competitive procurement process, BuyBoard gives members the advantage of leveraging the Cooperative’s ability to obtain bulk discounts, combined with the ease of online, web-based shopping.
