Moderated by Executive Director, Tammy Rimes, who has a famous country singer cousin - Lee Ann - this presentation will combine country music and cooperative procurement. Besides
buying stuff like tractors and trucks, this informative and fun presentation will help you discover ways in which this contracting tool can help with construction projects, services and unique strate gies. Real case studies will highlight procurement teams who "rocked" by using
innovative contracts.

A panel of NCPP Cooperative partners will provide insight into the types of questions to ask - of your Agency, the cooperative, the supplier and about the contract. Whether you work in a big city or a small country town, sing a different "tune" by taking your cooperative strategy to the next level!

Choosing a Cooperative Contract: 
What Questions Should You Ask?
Your procurement teams are faced with multiple decisions to solve problems every day. When faced with a contracting opportunity, how do you decide if and when to choose the cooperative procurement route? Do you have a strategy, or is it a wayward approach to a proverbial crossroad?

Watch this brand new NCPP video that shares the questions to ask before choosing a path toward cooperative procurement. Its guide is the "Road Map to a Cooperative Procurement Strategy," which is fast becoming a sought-after resource by procurement teams across the country.
Newly Released!
Latest Research on Cooperative Procurement
Harvard Kennedy School of Government recently issued "Cooperative Procurement: Today's Contracting Tool/Tomorrow's Contracting Strategy," to serve as the latest up-to-date academic research on the topic of cooperative procurement. What sets this white paper apart from previous research is it takes a 360-degree review - from the perspectives of public procurement professionals, suppliers and cooperative organizations. Under the leadership of Stephen Goldsmith, the Daniel Paul Professor of the Practice of Government and Director of the Innovations in American Government Program at Harvard, who also formerly served as the Mayor of Indianapolis and former deputy mayor of New York City, the paper concludes "cooperative purchasing clearly can add value." Goldsmith adds, "As the cooperative movement matures, it brings in new tools and approaches that can offer hope for beleaguered procurement shops aspiring to both get beyond the commodity work and to better understand new technologies."
