This year KPC will be celebrating 20 years of serving members. Established in 2002, KPC is a joint effort of educational cooperatives across Kentucky. KPC provides bidding and procurement services to over 850 members across 14 states, including the District of Columbia.
KPC members are primarily composed of public schools in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. These members look to us to provide the best value in purchasing while meeting the legal requirements of the Kentucky model procurement code (KRS 45A.345 to 45A.460). Thru the power of group purchasing, KPC members often benefit from lower pricing on items they would already purchased.
In addition, all for-profit, non-profit, and government entities are eligible to participate in KPC for free, which means they can receive the same discounted prices as schools across the Commonwealth. This includes religious groups, state and local government agencies, libraries, and many others. We focus on supporting members, vendors, and the students we serve.
· KPC membership is free and open to anyone.
· KEDC serves as fiscal agent for KPC.
· Operating under Model Procurement, KPC solicits bids for goods and services to maximize cost savings.
· KPC provides free, confidential cost comparisons and quotes from multiple vendors.
