Your Success. Our Passion.

Save Time & Money

MASA has partnered with some of the best in the education business to provide programs and services like the ones below to help your district get the most out of your time and money:

  • AASA Buyers Guide for Educators
    This website offers an exhaustive directory of vendors and service providers, often with special pricing for AASA members. The directory is also available as an iPhone app.
  • Michigan School Purchasing Pages
    An online directory that enables superintendents, school business officials, and other administrators to quickly search for services and products they need to provide the educational environment students deserve. The School Purchasing Pages features the business members of MSBO and MASA who supply products and services to Michigan school districts. 
  • Michigan Schools Energy Cooperative
    Michigan Schools Energy Cooperative (MISEC) was established in 1997 by MASB, MASA, MAISA, the Middle Cities Education Association and MSBO as a joint venture to take full advantage of cost-saving opportunities provided by energy deregulation. The goal to establish a cooperative buying group, which by virtue of its size will be a force in the wholesale market both for gas and electricity, has been accomplished. MISEC has saved more than $8 million on $45 million of electric services for over 125 school districts. For more information, contact Scott Little, 517.327.5920517.327.5920slittle@msbo.org
  • MiDEAL - Michgian Delivering Extended Agreements Locally
    MiDEAL is Michigan's nationally recognized cooperative purchasing program that offers more than 175 competitively bid contracts to its members. MiDEAL not only saves money on goods and services, but it eliminates administrative duplication and save time and money, streamlining your competitive bidding process. Furthermore, in 2006, Gov. Granholm initiated Buy Michigan First to encourage Michigan businesses to bid on state contract opportunities. Pursuant to Public Act 540 2008, a school board may adopt and implement a local policy that gives preference to Michigan-based businesses.

  • Oakland Schools Cooperative Contracts
  • Purchasing Card
    MASB is pleased to be part of the Michigan Purchasing Card Consortium led by MSBO, with MASB and MASA as partners, and JPMorgan Chase as the provider for our statewide program. The program is open to all school districts, colleges and universities in the state. Because we are aggregating the "spend" of a large group of schools, the bank offers a rebate.
  • Purchasing Pages
    is the place to go for RFPs, purchasing regulations, and an online directory of the best businesses in the education market for products, programs, and services your district is looking for.
  • SafeSchools
    Save training dollars and increase the opportunities for staff training through SafeSchools.com! SafeSchools, now partnered with MASA, MSBO, and MASB, is an online safety training and tracking system designed specifically for school employees. Best of all, if your district has SET SEG Property Casualty and Workers’ Compensation insurance, your district has FREE access to this extensive online training system. Non-SET SEG districts receive substantial discounts.
  • US Communities
    allows districts to piggyback on government contracts and gain access to thousands of quality products they need every day.
