|E & I|
The Educational and Institutional Cooperative purchasing organization, or E and I Cooperative, is a not-for-profit buying cooperative established in 1934 by members of the National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP) to provide goods and services to members at the best possible value. The mission of the cooperative purchasing organization is to exceed member expectations by providing high quality, cost-effective, and timely solutions through a diverse portfolio of competitive contracts and value-added services.
