Michigan Purchasing Card Consortium

The Michigan Purchasing Card Consortium might look similar to other card programs – but it’s not! It treats all districts that participate the same, regardless of size! It doesn’t have “teaser rebates” or “signing bonuses” or any other gimmick’s to get your business. Our card program allows school districts greater control of their expenses, saves time and money, offers benefits and conveniences to employees, adds to the financial internal control structure of your organization, and on top of all that…pays rebates!!

Bus Purchase Program

Phase II of the 2016–17 MSBO Bus Purchasing Program is now open. This program makes bidding and ordering buses extremely simple and smooth. The bidding has been accomplished for you; all that is left is to “build” the bus desired and compare pricing from the bidding dealers. To access the program, click here.

The program provides extensive flexibility and customization allowing you to customize your bus to fit your district’s needs. It automatically keeps a running subtotal of all dealer prices as you select various options.

MSBO Leadership Institute

The MSBO Leadership Institute is designed to help members reach that next level in their professional and personal life through a rigorous and challenging curriculum that will help them grow as leaders and implement solutions. It includes face-to-face group sessions focusing on specific leadership themes, an online learning community and individual personal coaching sessions.
