What is Cooperative Purchasing?
Cooperative purchasing is a way for small and remote (school districts, non-profits, local, county, state municipalities) to buy products and or services from a vendor that is prequalified, and that will offer the best value.
Purchasing Cooperative Of America (PCA) is a purchasing cooperative with contracts available for Public, Private and Charter Schools, Municipalities, States, Federal and Other Government Agencies, State and Private Colleges and Universities, and Non-Profit, Religious and Charitable Organizations . PCA members in all 50 States and the U.S. territories.
PCA is administered by Region III Education Service Center in Victoria, Texas, a Texas state agency. The State Agency connection is vitally important when members are spending federal funds. Where federal dollars are spent or commingled, the purchasing cooperative used must be administered by a State agency with the [cooperative] contracts awarded and held by that agency. Region III ESC awards and holds PCA contracts and administers the PCA cooperative purchasing program. Members benefit because PCA understands the needs of small as well as large public purchasing departments and their limits on time, personnel and expertise. The PCA cooperative program combines the benefits of specialty, local, and regional co-ops into a national program appealing to national companies with the value of industry best practice.
