USCM Procurement Program Improves Cost and Operating Efficiency
by Rich Anderson
Since cities are responsible for large expenditures in office and electrical supplies, office equipment, paper products, furniture and new technology, it makes sense that USCM would address the concerns of our cities’ procurement, purchasing, budget and finance officials and administrators. The Cooperative Purchasing Alliance program (CPA) and its contracts for city and local government are a response to the need for greater efficiency and savings in local government procurement.
Endorsed by the premier national organization for public procurement professionals, the National Institute for Governmental Purchasing (NIGP), the Alliance provides the opportunity for our nation’s cities to purchase quality goods and name-brand products at substantially reduced prices. Better pricing is leveraged through the nationwide volume of city and other local governments. Reduced pricing combined with relief provided from contract management processes frees purchasing officials’ time and strengthens your cities’ financial condition and purchasing power in the marketplace.
In short, USCM’s Cooperative Purchasing Program contracts mean savings on products and reductions in associated management costs for cities and their many departments and sub-agencies. Because it is a national program, its benefits are available to cities and municipalities all across the country.
The USCM Cooperative Purchasing Program currently offers the following product lines:
