How Cooperative Contracts Empower Government Procurement Officers

Government procurement officers play a crucial role in fulfilling the needs of their communities. NPPGov supports the work of these professionals by offering a long list of cooperative contracts that can help save valuable time in the procurement process.

Let’s take a look at how these cooperative contracts work and what benefits they deliver to governments and communities all across the country.

Understanding Cooperative Contracts

Cooperative contracts refer to the combining of requirements of two or more public procurement entities to leverage the benefits of volume purchases, delivery and supply chain advantages, best practices, and the reduction of administrative time and expenses. These contracts are created through a public solicitation and award process conducted by a Lead Public Agency.

The Benefits of Using Cooperative Contracts

Cooperative contracts offer several advantages for government procurement officers and their organizations:

  1. Cost Savings: By pooling their purchasing power, entities can achieve lower prices and more favorable terms and conditions

  2. Administrative Efficiency: Cooperative contracts reduce the time and resources needed to conduct market research and solicit bids

  3. Increased Competition: The use of cooperative contracts can lead to increased competition among suppliers, leading to better quality goods and services

NPPGov: Your Partner in Cooperative Procurement

Here’s how NPPGov delivers those benefits. We’re a national cooperative procurement organization that offers publicly solicited contracts to government entities nationwide. Members have free access to our cooperative contracts, with no obligations to buy. By signing an intergovernmental agreement with the Lead Public Agency, procurement officials can eliminate the time-consuming process of conducting their own RFP process by piggybacking on our contracts. This procedure fulfills state and local requirements for procurement, saving valuable time for government officials.

NPPGov serves a variety of government and nonprofit organizations, providing nationwide cooperative public procurement solutions while exceeding member and vendor expectations since 2005. By leveraging the power of cooperative contracts through NPPGov, government entities can more effectively fulfill the needs of their communities.

Plus, NPPGov is owned by non-profit hospitals, and a large portion of our proceeds helps support medical research at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) in Seattle, WA. By using our cooperative contracts, you’re helping fund important research that can help those living with autoimmune diseases.
