Focused Education's Services for School Districts
Focused Education offers cost and administrative savings through collaborative procurement for the K-12 sector. We establish shared contracts for select goods and services and we provide support for best procurement practices.
Focused Education's services are meant to complement procurement activities at the individual district level, not replace them. As Focused Education contracts are accessed and used, districts will be able to redirect the resources saved.

AGREEMENTS FOR DISTRICT USE
Our Agreements page includes a list of broader public sector agreements available for school district use. You can quickly locate and access details of agreements from Focused Education, the Province of BC and other public partners.
Focused Education partners with subject matter experts from BC Districts, creating teams to research, develop and implement collaborative procurement strategies for specific goods or services.
We leverage existing relationships and BCASBO Zone operating structures to create project teams.
Project structures ensure that contracts provide districts with the right products for the best value. To provide cost savings and administrative efficiencies, Focused Education contracts are based on an appropriate configuration of districts - regional, provincial, etc.
Focused Education works with other partners (BCNET, EDCO, Province of BC – Procurement Services Branch) to share ideas, coordinate initiatives and streamline services.
