Illinois Public Higher Education Cooperative (IPHEC)

The Illinois Public Higher Education Cooperative (IPHEC) was formed to consolidate common requirements for various state universities on one bid with subsequent orders being placed by each individual university for the contract period. The thirteen Illinois public universities participate in the Cooperative. One university initiates and receives bids on the consolidated requirement of a particular commodity. Upon determination of the lowest bid, IPHEC member universities each establish individual contracts with the selected vendor (vendors if multiple awards) for the commodity and office supplies, etc., are bid by the Cooperative as they are identified as common requirements for all the participating universities.
