E&I Cooperative Services

High-Quality Roofing Solutions for Public/Private Colleges and Universities

Together, E&I Cooperative Services (E&I), WTI and Tremco Roofing & Building Maintenance are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to streamlining higher-education facility improvements.

As a member-owned, not-for-profit sourcing cooperative, E&I helps its nearly 5,000-member institutions optimize supply chain efficiencies through access to a diverse portfolio of competitively awarded contracts. The cooperative’s member-driven competitive solicitation process has been validated by the National Institute of Government Purchasing (NIGP) as being in compliance with generally accepted public procurement standards. WTI is proud to be the national contract holder for roofing and related services through E&I.

Tremco Roofing and WTI provide E&I members with access to roofing and building envelope solutions that have been competitively awarded to deliver best-in-class overall value and service via a streamlined procurement process. E&I’s contract with WTI ensures that members receive the best value solutions without the cost or use of valuable staff time and resources to duplicate of the RFP process.

Through its cooperative contract, Tremco/WTI offers unique facility asset management solutions that are designed to improve building performance while reducing life-cycle costs for public/private colleges, universities, K-12 and other qualified institutions.
