AEA Purchasing

For Vendors

AEA Purchasing realizes that excellent vendors are key to a successful cooperative purchasing program. Quality education is enhanced through quality products and services. 

AEA Purchasing solicits vendors through a formal RFP or IFB process. Proposals are submitted for both Iowa only bids and bids on a national level through our affiliate, the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies, AEPA. AEPA is a multi-state non-profit organization made up of Educational Service Agencies organized through a Memorandum of Understanding between all participating states.

To receive e-mail notifications about bid opportunities through AEA Purchasing, visit the Vendor Registration. Every vendor is given equal opportunity to participate in bidding procedures.

About AEA Purchasing
AEA Purchasing facilitates a voluntary purchasing program to help Iowa schools and other eligible entities save time and money. AEA Purchasing is an initiative of the Iowa Association of Area Education Agencies (IAAEA). Our goal is to combine the purchasing power of Iowa schools to offer aggressive pricing on materials, goods and services through a competitive bid process. AEA Purchasing is also a member of the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), a multi-state non-profit organization of educational service agencies that works to leverage purchasing power to enable all schools and agencies, regardless of size, to purchase at equal buying levels.

All Iowa AEAs are required to adhere to state and federal laws that prohibit discrimination in programs, activities and employment practices. For specific information, contact your AEA.
