Placing an Order

To get the CPC discount, participating agencies must make sure they tell the sales representative they are a member of a service cooperative or have a participation agreement and want the CPC discount. Some local and regional vendors also require:

  • Reference Code
  • Including specific words. For example: CPC Membership

For your convenience, we provide a number of ways to place your orders.

  • Phone
  • Email

All order details are found on the individual vendor profile pages.

The Cooperative Purchasing Connection has contracts through the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA). These vendors may require you to include AEPA specific reference codes.

All reference codes are clearly stated on the vendor profile pages.
