COOPERATIVE PURCHASING

 

WHAT IS COOPERATIVE PURCHASING?

Cooperative Purchasing enables eligible political subdivisions to purchase goods and services from State Contracts if the contractor agrees to do so.  Cooperative Purchasing is an effective tool that government entities may use to leverage time and cost efficiencies.


Utilizing contracts established by the State Purchasing Bureau or contracts the State Purchasing Bureau has entered into with Cooperative Purchasing Organizations can reduce administrative time and save money.  In addition, you can be confident knowing that your purchases have met the standards of ethical and accountable procurement.
