KCDA is one of the founding members of AEPA (the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies)

AEPA’s purpose is to provide national purchases through local state educational cooperatives with the purchasing power of 28 states.

Because of this association KCDA members can enjoy the following benefits:

  • AEPA is made up of Education Cooperatives from 28 states thereby creating volume contracts for our members.

  • AEPA attracts national vendors with the diversity and power to supply a variety of supplies and services needed by Washington State members.

  • Contracts offer the lowest national pricing for members.

Even though contracts are national, your local cooperative remains your point of contact.
