Cooperative Purchasing

Do you procure generators for states, counties or other municipalities? If so, you face a host of challenges every day – rigid procurement policies, aggressive deadlines, budget cuts, staff shortages, a demanding public. That’s why you should opt for cooperative purchasing. So what is cooperative purchasing? It’s a procurement process conducted by, or on behalf of, one or more public procurement units as defined by the American Bar Association Model Procurement Code for State and Local Governments. Through cooperative purchasing, you enjoy the power and efficiency of multiple agencies working on your behalf to save you time and money.
