As New England’s premier purchasing organization for educational not-for-profits, MHEC has been working to make purchasing simpler and more affordable for both public and private K-12 schools for decades. We have contracts that address needs inside the classroom, as well as across all your facilities. Whether you’re a teacher, administrator, school nurse, gym coach, or custodian, MHEC contracts have you covered.

Some of our contracts for K-12 Schools include:

  • Athletics: Gym, Field, and Playground (B14)
  • Office and School Supplies & Equipment (F15)
  • Furnishings & Accessories (C07)

School librarians will find we have a whole portfolio of robust options for them as well, please visit our libraries page for more information.
