Welcome

Administrator taking notes
 
 
In August of 1981, the Eastern Suffolk BOCES Cooperative Bidding program was initiated in order to assist school districts in combating the effects that inflation was placing on the purchasing power of their tax dollars. By bidding their required needs on a cooperative basis, these school districts realized that significant savings could be generated and time and labor could be reduced. In addition, Cooperative Bidding could provide a greater number of competitive bids solicited and received.
 
Cooperative Bidding saves time and labor due to the following services offered by Eastern Suffolk BOCES: membership coordination, legal advertisement obligation, specification development, the computerization of bid lists, vendor solicitation and the production of bid award and purchasing reports. Legal advertisement alone, $300.00 + per bid, can justify Program participation.

In the first year of operation, the Program was composed of ten (10) Islip Township school districts and the Islip Town Government. More than 20 years later the Cooperative is comprised of Eastern Suffolk BOCES, Western Suffolk BOCES, the Town Governments of Brookhaven, Islip, and East Hampton, Village of Patchogue and the following sixty-six (66) school districts:
