AEPA is a national cooperative of education purchasing professionals representing lead agencies in their respective states.

Currently, AEPA consists of 30 member states who competitively bid contracts that are tailored to meet each state’s specific legal requirements. Awarded contracts are available statewide and facilitated by one cooperative member agency acting as the contract administrator. They will help you with any questions regarding the contract and provide any support documentation you need in order to purchase off the contract.

Please note that contracts are also available in non-member states through piggyback contract options. Download a complete member contact listing.
