TexBuy received AEPA’s (Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies) Innovation Award for 2020. AEPA is a national purchasing organization made up of 29 states with contracts in all 50 states. AEPA started in 2000 and has grown to be among the national leaders in purchasing cooperatives. TexBuy Director, Andrew Pickens is heavily involved in AEPA’s governance and operations through committee work and works hard not just for TexBuy but for the benefit of purchasing coop’s nationwide.
Only one entity per state can hold the AEPA national contracts and TexBuy is that entity for the entire state of Texas. This gives us a unique advantage for our member school districts across the State. All our members have access to National contract pricing with reputable vendors so that they can purchase products at a discounted cost and be good stewards of their resources. We are excited that our membership now includes school districts, municipalities, counties, and higher educational facilities throughout the State of Texas. We are also excited about our aggressive Rebate Program and look forward to distributing rebate checks next month
