Each educational purchasing consortium may become a member of the Ohio Council of Educational Purchasing Consortia by paying an annual membership fee of $200.  Each voting member must represent a public school district or a council of government that represents public school districts.

Current Members:

There are currently eight educational purchasing cooperatives in Ohio that are members of the Ohio Council of Educational Purchasing Consortia.  These cooperatives vary in size based on the needs and interests of the school district members in the region.  There are cooperatives with a few districts in a small region or county, and there are cooperatives with over 205 member districts and over 450,000 student base.  The programs offered by each cooperative vary according to the member district’s needs.
