Shared Services/Co-Op Purchasing

EIRC’s status as a Local Educational Agency (LEA #15, 1295, FED. NCES #3400062) as per N.J.S.A.  18A:6-95.1, allows EIRC to enter into shared service agreements with boards of education, municipalities, counties, fire districts, and other public agencies.

EIRC Technology Services as a New Jersey shared services provider, eliminates the need for the competititve bidding process and maximizes savings.  EIRC, created by state legislation in 1968, specializes in education related programs and services for schools, parents, communities and nonprofit organizations.

EIRC has established a record of providing services and products at a lower cost to local school districts and municipal partners.

Benefits of Shared Services

The New Jersey Department of Community Affairs describes shared services and cooperative purchasing as “viable alternatives to the conventional ‘go-it’alone’ bidding process.”

Shared services  and cooperative purchasing save both time and money.  Shared service participants enjoy cost savings, reduced work duplication, and increased efficiency.
