Purchasing Contracts

with ESD 112

ESD 112 operates a purchasing program under which competitive bids and proposals are solicited on behalf of school districts and other educational organizations. This program increases the purchasing power of eligible purchasers, therefore facilitating very competitive pricing from awarded bidders.

Current Purchasing Contracts

DigitalEdge

The DigitalEdge Purchasing Program at Education Service District 112 (ESD 112)  provide competitively bid contracts on educational technology solutions, wireless mobile devices, audio-visual solutions, high-tech products and school safety solutions that are available to "eligible purchaser's" in twelve western states including K-12 public and private schools, colleges and universities, regional service agencies, and state departments of education. "Eligible purchaser's" should complete an interlocal agreement as outlined on this website, if their governing laws require the purchaser to have an interlocal agreement. In addition, state laws authorize "piggybacking" off a bid that was competitively procured by another public agency in accordance with that agency's bid laws.  For additional information check the DigitalEdge website regarding the DigitalEdge contracts, all master product price lists, and purchasing information.  Contact:  Bunny Stevens, Project Coordinator of DigitalEdge, or call 360.952.3415 with any questions.

How do I utilize the ESD 112 Purchasing Contracts?

Step 1

Review the legal requirements for your organization to ensure eligibility for using these contracts. Some state laws and agency regulations require the use of an Interlocal Agreement when one public agency is relying on another public agency's competitively procured contracts. ESD 112 will provide an Interlocal Agreement to any eligible purchaser who requests one.

Before proceeding to step 2, check the Signed Interlocal Agreements section at the bottom of this page to learn whether your district has a Purchasing Agreement on file with ESD 112.  However, it is recommended that all school districts complete a new Interlocal Agreement.  

Step 2

Effective August 15, 2017, ESD 112 is updating the Interlocal Agreement form.  Please follow the instructions below to complete the new electronic signature ILA.
