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 and high-tech products that are available to "eligible purchasers" in twelve western states including K-12 public and private schools, colleges and universities, public libraries, regional service agencies, state departments and other governmental agencies.  "Eligible purchasers" should complete an interlocal agreement as outlined on this webpage, if their governing laws require they have an interlocal agreement. In addition,state laws authorize "piggybacking" off of a bid that was competitively procured by another public agency in accordance with that agency's bid laws.  For additional information check the DigitalEdge web site regarding the DigitalEdge contracts, all master product pricelists, and purchasing information.  Contact  Bunny Stevens, Project Coordinator of DigitalEdge, or phone 360.952.3415 with any questions.
