The US Educational Technology Purchasing Alliance (herein "USETPA") assists Public Agencies to reduce the cost of purchased goods through strategic sourcing that combines the volumes and the purchasing power of public agencies nationwide. The Executive Management Team consists of high ranking employees that work together to manage USETPA. These individuals oversee the daily operations of the company to ensure efficiency and product satisfaction.

Our Approach

The USETPA is an alliance that was formed to leverage the purchasing power of schools, libraries and public entities. We have created pre-bid convenience contracts which have all been let on a not to exceed price basis. This means that every item purchased receives a discount while larger and aggregated orders may receive additional discounts. This is particularly powerful when combined with our reverse auction portal.

All vendors have responded to a formally bid RFP and awarded a contract. End users can be sure that all state and local procurement rules and regulations have been met while getting the lowest prices available.

Subscribers applying for E-Rate funding can use the USETPA 470 in lieu of issuing their own or in addition to issuing their own 470. By streamlining the E-rate application process, subscribers save valuable time and resources.
