Joint Purchasing

The 13 school districts and 3 vocational-technical schools formed the Northampton/Monroe/Pike County Joint Purchasing Board in 1997.  Each member district (with the approval of their respective Boards of Directors) may engage in the practice of joint purchasing of materials, supplies, equipment, insurance and services when their participation will be to the advantage of the district.  The Colonial Intermediate Unit 20 serves as the coordinator of all administrative procedures related to the joint purchasing/bidding process.  Joint purchasing is carried out by complying with the applicable provisions of the Pennsylvania School Code and Laws.

The following are examples of items/services that have been purchased by the Joint Purchasing Board:
  • Third Party Administrative Services
  • Duplicating/Printing Paper Products
  • Janitorial Paper Supplies
  • Group Life Insurance
  • Trash Removal Services
  • Fuel Oil
