• Purchasing Advisory Council (PAC) 

    Our Purpose:
    Enable Region One ESC Purchasing Departments to operate efficiently and economically.
    Our Priority:
    Region One ESC Purchasing Departments will meet State and Federal compliance requirements.
    Our Services:
    The Purchasing Advisory Council and its meetings will serve as an organized forum for networking, sharing of best practices, improving current procedures, forging new avenues to source and procure products and services, and professional development in the field of purchasing. This will be done by identifying and harnessing Region One’s buying power using data analytics and partnering with suppliers to leverage spending.  The aim is to utilize strategic approaches that will result in augmented supplier relations, product and service availability to districts and increased cost savings.  Chaired by the Region One ESC Purchasing Director, the Council is comprised of purchasing agents of all Region One area school districts and charter schools.  The council meets monthly to discuss pertinent agenda items related to the improvement of purchasing operations.  In addition, the PAC will seek partnerships and opportunities for local vendor outreach and education.
