Many public agencies and school districts utilize the cooperatives listed below to ensure legal compliance of the organizations they work with and to reduce overall costs of bidding and purchasing. In our commitment to our clients, Advanced Classroom Technologies has registered our solutions and services with the following purchasing contract administrations.
California Multiple Award Schedules
The California Multiple Award Schedules (CMAS) offers a wide variety of commodities, non-IT services and information technology products and services at prices which have been assessed to be fair, reasonable and competitive.
The State of California establishes multiple award agreements in accordance with Public Contract Code Sections 10290 et seq. and 12101.5 (effective January 1994). A multiple award is an award to two or more contractors for the same products and/or services at the same or similar prices. Multiple award does not pertain to the number of buyers who would be ordering from the agreement, but rather the number of contractors receiving an award from a common bid process.

Educational Service District 112 provides contracts that feature many products for Chromebooks and Related Solutions, School Safety Solutions, Educational Technology, Wireless Devices and Audio-Visual Equipment, and STEM/STEAM Solutions that are competitively bid and made available to the K-12 public and private schools, colleges and universities, regional service agencies and state departments of education in twelve western states. Now in its 13th year, the DigitalEdge purchasing program has saved purchasers an average of 17% on their instructional technology costs. You can take advantage of these savings, too!
KCDA Purchasing Cooperative
KCDA’s mission is to provide centralized procurement services to member school districts and public agencies that will save them time and money as well as comply with all legal procurement requirements. KCDA's goal is to help school districts focus their resources in the classroom and to help public agencies focus on direct services to the taxpayers.

KCDA manages centralized receiving, warehousing, and distribution while offering additional contracts to provide a single-source for consumable supplies, facilities projects, and technology equipment.
