AISNE Webinar: The i-buy Marketplace from MHEC


Come learn about a new way to save on vendor contracts for your school’s operations.

The Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium is a not-for-profit group purchasing organization that has been creating diverse, transparently bid contracts for its not-for-profit members for 45 years. They have over 50 contracts in their portfolio giving K-12 schools and other members access to suppliers of products and services for just about anything they need to operate. Their 2200+ members give them buying power to drive down prices for members in K-12, Higher Education, Municipalities (Cities and Towns), Libraries, and other sectors.

There is no obligation to purchase, and membership is free.

MHEC has recently launched a new online shopping tool called i-buy marketplace™ and would like to present it to AISNE members. It’s free to use for MHEC members. If you would like to join MHEC before attending the presentation, you can apply easily online in just a couple of minutes.

Janet Garabedian, MHEC Business Development Manager, will introduce you to the Massachusetts Higher Education Consortium (MHEC) and give an over of how AISNE member schools can use the i-buy marketplace™ to:

    • Find diverse suppliers from the 50+ (and growing) online stores
    • Get quotes from multiple suppliers
    • Fill a cart from multiple contracts
    • Use a purchase order or p-card to pay
    • Transfer your cart to a centralized approver
    • Use its administrative functionality to control purchasing for your school


    This presentation is free-of-charge and for all who play a role in purchasing for their school.
