Why Use Cooperative Purchasing?

  • Benefits of using the Cooperative Purchasing Connection

    • Volume Counts! The combined purchasing power of our nearly 1,500 member agencies create substantial discounts on products available from our more than 40 partnered vendors. 
    • Convenient Ordering! Purchase directly from the vendors and order only what you need, when you need it. 
    • Satisfies Bid Requirements! Our formal bids and RFPs satisfy the Minnesota competitive bidding requirements (Minnesota Statute 471.345 subd. 15) so you can purchase off our contracts without needing to bid on your own. Saving you time and money!
    • Expertise On Your Side!  The statewide Cooperative Purchasing Connection team has experience working with member and vendors. This established relationship is the foundation of our assurance on great pricing, quality, and service.
