Cooperative purchasing streamlines the procurement process for government agencies and allows them to purchase goods and services through an established, inter-local contract that has already gone through the competitive solicitation process and vetted by the cooperative. This saves your organization time and money!
BLD Services is proud to have been awarded contracts for Trenchless Solutions from Purchasing Cooperative of America (PCA) and COSTARS (Pennsylvania only). To take advantage of these contracts, you just need to sign up as a Member with the agency. Membership is free to you, and the agency will walk you through step by step during the process.
What are the advantages of using this kind of contract?
- Reduces the time and costs governmental agencies spend on solicitations
- Contracts have been awarded by virtue of the competitive bid process and are compliant with state and local statutes
- Agencies are able to purchase “Best Value” services from reputable contractors
