Cooperative Purchasing

The Educational Services Commission, formerly the Middlesex Regional Educational Services Commission, is New Jersey’s largest Educational Services Commission and cooperative pricing system. ESCNJ develops bid specifications according to the requests of its members. ESCNJ’s goal is to save taxpayers both time and money by seeking out the best prices for members and with no fee to join, lifetime membership is very simple. Additionally, ESCNJ is a member of the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), a national purchasing association which includes 26 states and brings additional buying power to ESCNJ’s members.
Hunterdon County Educational Services Commission acts as the lead agent for a cooperative comprised of hundreds of school districts, municipalities, counties, and other municipal government agencies within the State of NJ. Cooperative pricing is a purchasing system whereby the lead agency (HCESC) prepares and advertises for bids, awards a master contract to the lowest responsible bidder, provides for its own needs and extends the prices to our registered members. There is no fee to join & membership is continually growing.
