Cooperative Procurement

How public sector fleets can save money, procurement time and stretch budgets.


Procurement statutes also allow a government agency to use another's contract as a basis of award. Recently the State of Delaware DOT purchased mobile column lifts by using the federal GSA price as a bench-mark and issuing a purchase order to a lift vendor.

Bottom line: Cooperative procurement can and does save money. Would you buy a personal item without first checking around for some prices? Why would you do anything differently when you're using taxpayers' money?
