Welcome to Florida Buy!
The Florida Buy State Cooperative Purchasing program offers a free state-wide solution for government procurement by providing competitively solicited contracts though the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies and in conjunction with a Tri-consortia partnership between the Panhandle Area Educational Consortium (PAEC), the Heartland Educational Consortium (HEC) and North East Florida Educational Consortium (NEFEC) for thousands of products and services, many of which offer free shipping. We also offer pre-bid contracts on some capital projects such as roofing repairs, athletic surfaces, fencing, bleachers, sports lighting, flooring, and many others. Office supplies, custodial supplies, furniture, technology, textbooks, facility management software and other contracts provide multiple solutions to your purchasing needs.
The Florida Buy State Cooperative Purchasing program is legislatively sanctioned and provides a solution to FS 1010.04 (1)(b) requiring Florida schools to utilize contracts established through the Department of Management Services or through “Cooperative State purchasing programs managed through regional consortium service organizations”.
For quick purchases, use the Florida Buy Marketplace and shop an “Amazon” like platform that allows payments with P-cards and purchase order.
