About Collaborative Buying E & I Cooperative
E&I Cooperative

A University Strategic Alliance Partner for Collaborative Buying Services

The Educational & Institutional Cooperative Service (E&I), the only collaborative buying organization dedicated to higher education, is our primary collaborative buying business partner.

In addition to the contract suppliers listed below, Purchasing Services is partnering with E&I in the Higher Education Collaborate Sourcing Project with other major institutions across the country. Purchasing Services evaluates each newly awarded E&I competitively-bid contract for its competitiveness to existing Penn pricing. Purchasing Services will adopt and implement each new E&I competitively bid contract when the E&I contract supplier pricing as well as business terms and conditions are favorable to the University.
