Municipal Purchasing Process

Cooperative Purchasing Saves Time and Money
  • Reducing the Costs of Cart Procurement

    Cooperative purchasing organizations work with public agencies to competitively solicit national contracts on behalf of their participants, allowing approved public entities to leverage the power of large-volume, competitively bid pricing. Because we participate in two cooperative purchasing programs, even the smallest organizations may purchase Toter® products easily and at competitive prices.

    Not only is the contracting process streamlined, but because the contract process has already been conducted, organizations also realize tremendous savings versus sourcing products on their own. Eligible purchasing organizations include governments, educational institutions and non-profit agencies. There is no cost to join and no cost to use the contracts available through OMNIA Partners, Sourcewell and others.
