About Cooperative Purchasing

Cooperative Purchasing means procurement conducted by, or on behalf of, one or more Public Procurement Units. Two or more government agencies collaborate to issue a solicitation for products/services used by those agencies. Also, a third-party organization can facilitate the creation and use of the cooperative contract. Such a third-party organization works with lead public agencies to conduct a public solicitation (RFP) and develop a Master Price Agreement.

Other government agencies may piggy back on those contracts by signing an IGA (Intergovernmental Agreement) with the Lead Public Agency. An IGA Allows customer to piggyback off contract. Pricing in response usually better due to more guaranteed sales.
