For Districts

Let Region 7 Purchasing Cooperative help your district's procurement process by providing 38 categories of items to be bid that meet the requirements of the Texas Education Agency Audit Division and the Attorney General's Anti-Trust Office.

Please note that Region 7 Purchasing Cooperative strives to provide your district with a vast selection of vendors that have undergone a legal bid process. We cannot recommend a vendor of choice. It is at the discretion of the district to make purchasing recommendations. For compliancy on EDGAR & TEC, visit the Purchasing FAQ page.



Membership is available to any state or education agency within the state of Texas. The Cooperative does not operate outside Texas. As a member of the Region 7 Purchasing Cooperative, you will have the flexibility to access all awarded vendors by commodity, company name, or bid category. You will work directly with the vendor without sending a purchase order through the cooperative.

Annual membership fees are charged to each education entity or agency and can vary per enrollment, agency designation, and/or participation. Please email for information on participation requirements and necessary documentation.
