Volume Purchasing

Saving Organizations Money Through Negotiated Pricing

SHESC offers a variety of volume purchasing options to help school districts and other organizations stretch their purchasing funds.

The Smoky Hill Volume Purchasing program saves school districts and other organizations money!  

The program is free to SHESC members. For districts and organizations that are not SHESC members there is a 2% administrative fee for purchases made during each quarter (quarterly purchase total X 2%=administrative fee). SHESC invoices for this fee at the end of each quarter.

For more information, email Adam Pracht at vp@smokyhill.org or call 785-825-9185.
