ISEPS PPE Coronavirus Buying Consortium

Many members of ISEPS have inquired about purchasing PPE supplies as offices across the state begin to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic.  We are pleased to announce the creation of a buying consortium for N95, KN95 and 3-ply disposable surgical masks.  ISEPS is partnering with our colleagues in New York State and Connecticut to achieve favorable pricing.  Our vendor is somebody we consider to be reliable, and documentation for the authenticity of these products has been provided to us. 

Items currently available are described below along with the price per piece.  Since this is a service to ISEPS members, we are not making a profit on this project; pricing and shipping is "at cost."

It is very likely that we will be placing additional orders with our suppliers, although a specific timetable has not yet been established.  In the future, we may consider adding gloves, hand sanitizer or other products, depending on availability, interest among members and pricing.


Complete the online order form or phone in your order by calling the ISEPS office:  847-680-1666. 

We will need to have a physical shipping address and a contact person.  Payment with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover) is required at the time of your order.  

Once the materials are received at the ISEPS office, we will prepare your order and send it by UPS Ground (the cost of local shipping to your office will be charged to the credit card used for your original order), or you may come to the ISEPS office to pick up your supplies.  When the materials are received and ready to distribute, we will get in touch with the contact person you provided.


We currently have the following products available.  Prices are per piece and includes shipping from the supplier to Vernon Hills, IL.
