1. Who is E&I and why should I work with them?
E&I is the largest, member-owned, non-profit purchasing cooperative serving the needs of education. We provide over 130 competitively solicited contracts and dedicated member resources nationwide. As a trusted advisor to the education community, we exist solely to help our members save time and money.
Why E&I is different!
2. Why do I have to register for an account?
We use an Electronic Sourcing Solution, hosted by Jaggaer, to conduct all of our RFx events (i.e. RFPs, RFIs). This system requires each respondent to create an account so they will have access to view the event details as well as submit their response. The registration process also allows us to capture the commodity codes relative to a supplier's goods/services so that it will automatically be notified of future RFx events for those selected commodities.

If you do not already have an account, simply click on the Create Account button. See How to Respond to an RFx Guide for additional help and screenshots.
4. How do I register as an RFx Respondent and receive notifications of future RFx events that may be of interest to me?
