BuyBoard Cooperative Purchasing
Sciens Awarded Vendor Status
BuyBoard Cooperative Purchasing was founded on the vision of pooling the purchasing power of public schools, municipalities, counties, and all types of local government agencies and nonprofits. Many of these organizations would not be able to secure higher volume discount pricing without the collective purchasing power of BuyBoard.
Members benefit from the Cooperative’s competitive procurement process by saving time and resources that would have been spent preparing and conducting a formal RFP. Besides reducing administrative costs, members enjoy financial gains through competitive pricing and rebates.
Fast, Hassle-Free Vendor Selection
One of the biggest advantages of working with a BuyBoard awarded vendor, like Sciens Consulting, is that members do not have to go through an individual procurement process. BuyBoard’s RFQ process allows members to request pricing from multiple vendors. This convenient and efficient process can be finalized in days, versus weeks or months, like a typical formal bid/proposal process.
Vendors awarded through BuyBoard have been competitively procured to ensure members abide by Texas procurement compliance requirements with a documented audit trail. BuyBoard Cooperative Purchasing analyzes products and services submitted through a competitive proposal invitation process to make award recommendations. As a BuyBoard awarded vendor, Sciens was evaluated and determined to deliver quality services at reasonable prices.
The Texas Association of School Boards (TASB) administers the activities of the Cooperative, which is governed by an 11-member board of directors. More information about BuyBoard Cooperative Purchasing, visit www.buyboard.com
