Cooperative Contracting

Cooperative Purchasing

As allowed by public law and when it is advantageous, the County may utilize cooperative contracts established by the Commonwealth of Virginia or other public entities. 

We are a member of National Cooperative Procurement Partners (NCPP; www.ncppassociaiton.org) , whose mission is to produce meaningful resources to support public procurement agencies.  Our membership helps the County meet challenges head-on:  improving operating efficiency, expanding our capacity, increasing professional knowledge, and gaining industry insight.

With the proliferation of Cooperative Contracts, the county may use third-party services to assist in selecting the "best" coop contract to use when a product or service is available through multiple coop organizations.  Examples include:  CompareCoops (www.comparecoops.com).
