E&I Partnership

Matrix Integration works hard to give your institution the best pricing for all of your technology needs and in doing this has partnered with E&I. Educational & Institutional Cooperative Purchasing (E&I) is a not-for-profit buying cooperative established by members of the National Association of Educational Procurement (NAEP) to provide goods and services to members at the best possible value.

The Cooperative is owned by its membership of more than 1600 tax-exempt colleges, universities, K-12, hospitals, medical research institutions and hospital purchasing organizations located throughout the United States.

How it works

E&I leverages the total purchasing power of its member institutions to significantly reduce the cost of acquisition and supply. The Cooperative lowers the cost of purchasing by:

  • Lowering the up front purchase price through aggregated purchasing power
  • Optimizing the procurement process by creating contracts that comply with applicable procurement standards
  • Reducing the total cost of acquisition by leveraging the knowledge and expertise of members and supplier partners to establish best practices
  • Providing additional financial benefits via distribution of patronage refunds

For more information on the benefits available through E&I, visit their membership site at http://www.naep-eandi.org/. Not sure if your institution is already benefiting from membership in the Cooperative? Check their Member Locator to see if your institution is listed.
