META Solutions’ Purchasing Cooperative analyzes costs, negotiates with vendors, and makes recommendations for products and services that have been submitted for competitive bidding. Our number one goal is to save schools time and money, and we do so by effectively providing an online marketplace of quality goods and services at substantially lower prices.

In addition, META purchasing members are able to leverage the collective buying power of a consortium of schools serving more than 450,000 students across the state of Ohio. All members have equal standing for their purchases, regardless of size.

META’s Purchasing Cooperative has provided millions of dollars in cost savings, and has significantly increased work efficiency in our districts. We are a one-stop-shop for all your purchasing needs, providing high quality products at special rates so that schools can focus on what matters most – educating students!
