The Educational & Institutional Cooperative Purchasing (E&I) is a buying cooperative that serves colleges and universities. Established in 1934 by members of The National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP), E&I uses the combined purchasing power of over 2,400 member institutions to lower costs on a wide range of products and services.
E&I provides members with access to a diverse portfolio of high quality national and regional contracts from best-in-class suppliers. This partnership was championed by one of AIKCU’s technology partners, Unbridled Information Technologies, in order to give AIKCU campuses access to E&I’s competitively priced HP Contracts.
For direct access to AIKCU’s HP/E&I catalog of HP hardware, software and peripherals visit www.hp.com/buy/aikcu.
With AIKCU joining the cooperative, all of our campuses are now eligible to buy from any of the E&I contracts. There is no campus enrollment fee. E&I’s member-driven competitive solicitation process has been validated by the National Institute of Governmental Purchasing (NIGP).
