Save time and money by purchasing from our ready-to-use, competitively solicited contracts.
Cooperative purchasing is “Procurement 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.
Sourcewell's analysts streamline the procurement process by developing RFPs and IFBs for national, competitive solicitations that meet or exceed local requirements. Our rigorous process is continually refined to best meet member needs and allows us to offer exceptional products from nationally acclaimed vendors.
Our Procurement Team takes care of the entire competitive solicitation process—both request for proposals on general purchases and invitations to bid on construction contracting—so you don't have to. Still have questions? We've got you covered.
