The Cooperative Purchasing Network
(TCPN) is a national governmental purchasing cooperative able to leverage one of the largest pools of purchasing potential. We competitively bid and award contracts to national vendors in accordance with purchasing procedures mandated by state procurement laws and regulations. This means equal pricing for the smallest entities and the largest buyers.
Utilizing a TCPN contract means you deal directly with the vendor, as you would normally, using the TCPN contract as your own. We’ve already done the hard part, and we’ll be with you every step of the way to help increase your efficiency, shorten your delivery time, and stretch your tax dollars.
Governmental entities working together, saving the soft costs associated with the competitive bid process, reaping the benefits of nationally leveraged pricing, and it’s free of charge – no dues, no fees, nothing . . .that’s working smart!
