New Procurement Professional Resources Hub for the California community Colleges


Statewide Foundation and CollegeBuys

The Foundation for California Community Colleges (Foundation) coordinates systemwide procurement and contracting conversations through the CollegeBuys program. The Foundation is the official 501c3 nonprofit auxiliary of the California Community Colleges Board of Governors and Chancellor's Office. CollegeBuys, in collaboration with procurement leaders in our system, secure agreements that leverage the buying power of California's 115 community colleges to secure cost savings, best value, and uniformity in service level expectations. Learn more.

Statewide Advisory Group

CollegeBuys is guided by a 10-member voluntary Advisory Group that represents the state's diverse regions and district compositions to ensure robust and broad reaching approaches are employed in supporting our districts. The Advisory Group oversees ad hoc work groups that are convened based on system priorities, and sanctions the Annual Purchasing Conference -- ensuring alignment with ongoing professional development and networking priorities.

Join the conversations!

New members are encouraged to reach out to the CollegeBuys team for statewide directory inclusion, and regional Northern California Community Colleges Purchasing Group (NCCCPG), or Southern California Community Colleges Purchasing Association (SCCCPA) participation.

Systemwide Contracts Library

Access and Institutional Equity are premised upon providing every single community college in the state with the same pricing, terms and conditions, and support regardless of the amount of individual spend and size of district. Essentially, these code-compliant contracts are group-purchasing vehicles that leverage the buying power of all 115 community colleges in the state -- resulting in advantageous pricing and terms, and driving down cost for both large and smaller colleges. In the past 10 years alone, these agreements have resulted in $500 million of cost savings. Visit the Contracts Library
