◊◊Cooperative Purchasing Connection Wins National Award for Relationship Excellence

Cooperative Purchasing Connection (CPC) has received a national award for relationship building through the Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA).

The Relationship Excellence award recognizes excellence in stakeholder engagement strategies that proactively support opportunities for co-discovery, intimacy, trust-building, collaboration, brainstorming, solution development, and other activities that support the mission of AEPA.

CPC is the trusted cooperative contract procurement partner for education communities, municipalities, and nonprofits. CPC maintains a portfolio of competitively solicited contracts that Minnesota, North Dakota, and South Dakota schools and organizations have come to rely on for service, relationship, and great value.

AEPA is a national cooperative of education purchasing professionals from 29 states, managing national contracts with vendors in dozens of buying categories.

Each year AEPA members vote to recognize outstanding contributions by AEPA member states and vendor partners. The CPC team received the award for Relationship Excellence at the AEPA Spring 2021 Annual Meeting, held virtually on April 20, 2021.
