BuyBoard Purchasing Co-Op

What is BuyBoard?

A National Purchasing Co-Op: The BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative is a nationwide purchasing Co-Op that was formed between the National School Boards Association (NSBA) and several state school board associations to streamline the buying process for schools, municipalities and other public entities. BuyBoard was developed to comply with state laws that require governmental entities to make purchases from an approved list of vendors who have gone through a competitive procurement process. Membership Registration with BuyBoard is FREE. BuyBoard gives members the advantage of leveraging the Cooperative’s ability to obtain bulk discounts, combined with the ease of online, web-based shopping through the use of the BuyBoard electronic purchasing application.

K-Log offers a 5% discount to BuyBoard members.

Who Can Join BuyBoard?

Check with your Purchasing Manager: Generally, publicly funded schools, colleges and governmental organizations are allowed to become BuyBoard members. This includes local, municipal and county government agencies. Churches, private and charter schools, daycare centers and nonprofit organizations are also eligible. However, certain states restrict membership for some governmental entities. Membership qualification is specific to your home state, so verify that your state’s purchasing law allows for the operation of purchasing Co-Ops. This information is available on their website at

Can We Be A Member Of More Than One Co-Op?

Yes, membership is allowed in BuyBoard and other Co-Ops: Many organizations are members of BuyBoard, as well as additional Co-Ops and purchasing contracts. This offers the benefits of a wide product selection from multiple approved vendors.

Can Membership Be Done Online?

Register online in a few simple steps: Membership registration can be done online. Just go to BuyBoard’s website at and click on the “How To Join” link. But it’s always best to check with your purchasing administrator to confirm what the statutes are in your particular jurisdiction. Membership is free.

As A Member, Are We Restricted To Only Purchase From BuyBoard?

No, you still have purchasing choices: If your organization becomes a member of the BuyBoard purchasing Co-op you are still free to purchase from your choice of vendors. You are not restricted to making purchases solely through the Co-Op. Being a member of a national Co-Op is non-exclusive, so the choice is yours as to who you order from.
