It is my pleasure to announce that Unified Purchasing Cooperative has become a nine-time recipient of the “Agency Certification Award”. This award is presented annually by the Universal Public Procurement Certification Council to agencies “for demonstrating the pursuit of professional excellence”.

Unified Purchasing Cooperative is one of only twenty-eight public agencies in the United States and Canada to be presented this award for 2017, in addition to being the only Educational Cooperative in Ohio, Kentucky or Indiana to be a recipient.


Welcome to the Unified Purchasing Cooperative of the Ohio River Valley. As a Council of Government, the Cooperative primarily serves K-12 schools in Southwest Ohio, Southeast Indiana and Northern Kentucky by continually striving to secure the best prices for quality products and services through open and fair competition.

This site is designed for vendors wishing to do business with the Cooperative and for schools seeking information concerning the Cooperative and the value of membership.
