Doing Business with MCOE



The MCOE procures, for its programs, using a centralized purchasing system. The MCOE aspires to maintain a mutually cooperative yet actively competitive attitude in order to obtain the best possible quality, price, and delivery. Large Merced County school districts purchase independently of the MCOE.​

The MCOE warehouse maintains a STORES system, which includes filling orders for basic classroom supplies such as copy paper, pencils, construction paper, and various instructional supplies.
