Cooperative Purchasing

Overview
The Purchasing Division is authorized by policy to join with other units of government in cooperative procurement. Competitive solicitations received by other governmental agencies may be considered the equivalent of solicitations received by the Town and used as the basis for purchasing by the Town.

Affiliations
The Town is actively involved in cooperative purchasing endeavors through its affiliations with the Colorado Multiple Assembly of Procurement Officials (whose membership is comprised of 40 public purchasing agencies representing state, county, municipal, special district, school district and other local area governments) and with the purchasing agents subcommittee of the Partnership of Douglas County Governments.
