Vendor Direct Contracts
To initiate an order with a KCDA Contract Vendor please visit the "Awarded Contracts" page at KCDA.org. Once you have located your contract category and selected a vendor please review the "Order Placement / Processing" section on that contract page for specific instructions to order through this vendor. Depending on the vendor contract, you may be directed to contact the referenced KCDA Purchasing Agent, or be instructed to contact the vendor directly through the information detailed on the Awarded Contract page.
All vendor direct contracts (i.e. including AEPA contracts) are awarded based on a competitive, sealed bid process by KCDA. Items ordered under these contracts are shipped directly from the vendor/manufacturer to our member. KCDA invoices our member once the item(s) have shipped and we have received an invoice from the vendor/manufacturer. KCDA does not charge service fees on our vendor direct contracts.
Certain KCDA contracts are set up with vendor direct billing, these categories include:
Purchases made through KCDA must be in compliance with all established school and government policies, and are not intended for private use.
