Reasons to Use Cooperative Purchasing Solutions

  • We’ve already done the research and we’ll be with you every step of the way to help increase buying efficiencies and maximize your budget. The cooperative purchasing teams of the Cooperative Purchasing Connection and Sourcewell are dedicated to providing you with the best price, quality and service available!
    Direct ship and pay programs!  You can order what you need when you need it. This eliminates warehousing, stockpiling, old inventory, over purchasing, etc.
    Access to larger purchasing opportunities!  Eight of the service cooperatives are members of the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), a 23 state purchasing group that bids annually for large commodity contracts such as carpet, roofing, furniture, technology supplies, and more. The ninth service cooperative, Sourcewell, has nationally bid and awarded 400 contracts plus over 527 construction contracts nationwide.
    Use the contracts you need!  We have a broad selection of contracts from which to choose. Use them all or just a few to fill your needs!
    Savings on “soft costs”!  We save you the time expended to shop, call for quotes, research vendors, bid, or deal with vendor issues.
    Take NO out of the room with leasing options! NCL Government Capital provides options for public entities to secure creative financial solutions to purchase more products/equipment, services and fixed assets. They offer lease services to virtually any state, county, city and municipal government and their agencies including law enforcement, public safety, fire, rescue, EMS, water and port authorities, school districts, community colleges and state universities.
