Interested in Becoming a Contracted Vendor?

State budgets continue to put increased pressure on educational institutions and public agencies to obtain best value and maximize taxpayer dollars. The Foundation for California Community Colleges (FoundationCCC) helps educational institutions and public agencies operate more effectively through streamlined procurement and contracting efforts while realizing significant cost savings.

FoundationCCC agreements are established through a compliant process to maximize value and meet code requirements. Cooperative utilization clauses allow educational institutions and public agencies to successfully leverage agreements, and resulting cost savings are reinvested back into the California education system.

A partnership with FoundationCCC’s Enterprise and Procurement Services allows prospective vendors to reach systemwide stakeholders in their key market groups. A single purchasing agreement provides end users with greater operational efficiency, and vendors can reduce administrative overhead by avoiding duplicative bid responses and localized contracting efforts.

Enterprise and Procurement Services supports all contracted partners through onboarding training and contract lifecycle issue resolution support. Supplementary marketing and outreach support includes, but is not limited to, a dynamic web profile, webinars, co-branded collateral, newsletters, and support at conferences and events. If you are interested in becoming a partner, please review active solicitations through PlanetBids platform below.
