  • No Cost or Commitment

    Membership is free and there are no charges or requirements to use our contracts. Vendors pay a fee to Sourcewell each time their contract is used, which funds our services. Our contracts are nonexclusive with no obligation to purchase.

  • Region 5 Rebate Program

    The fees Sourcewell earns from vendors on purchases made by Region 5 members are refunded back to the purchasing agency. As a Region 5 agency, you receive a check each September for 1% of purchases made in the past year using Sourcewell contracts.

  • Easy

    Contracts are already solicited and ready for use. There’s no need to go through the solicitation process. Purchasing is simple: you search awarded contracts and select a vendor.

  • National Strength. Local Choice.

    Sourcewell awards contracts at the manufacturer level when possible. The manufacturer’s authorized dealer network is then encouraged to sell the products to Sourcewell members at the local level.

  • Meet YOUR Needs

    Members can propose supplemental terms and conditions to the Sourcewell contract to meet their local requirements. Plus, we offer a wide range of solutions—from education to construction to technology—with specialists in-house to help you find the right purchase to fit your unique needs.

  • Compliant

    We are a government agency, so we understand the complexities of government purchasing. We have the expertise and resources to solicit contracts the same way you would—in compliance with local and national regulations.

  • Transparent

    Sourcewell's procurement team maintains a complete file. You can find contract documentation posted on our website under a specific vendor, or it is available by request. For over 40 years, Sourcewell has been a trusted source for cooperative purchasing.
