How to Use

ProcureSource was created to make cooperative purchasing easier. By providing an online directory of available cooperative contracts as well as the tools to help perform the due diligence, we deliver a single site to help you identify your cooperative purchasing options. 

5 Search Options:

Search Box - At the top of each page you'll see a general search box. Type in your keywords and hit the search button. The search tool will continue to be built out so if your search doesn't return results, please try again on your next visit.

Cooperative - If you are looking to utilize a specific cooperative contract, this is the place to start. You can select the cooperative and then scroll through the available options. The list can be sorted by contract name, term end, lead agency or supplier

Supplier - Looking to see if a particular supplier has a cooperative contract? Use our supplier search. You can scroll through the alphabetical listings, or type key terms into the search box located on the Supplier page.

Category - If you know you have a purchasing need, this is the place to start. Browse through various categories for cooperative products and services and then click through to get a list of contracts.

Lead Agency - When you have a requirement that necessitates use of a contract that was solicited and awarded by a lead agency, this is where you'll start your search. To support due diligence efforts, ProcureSource will only list an organization in the Lead agency field if it fits the definition of a political subdivision.

Due Diligence

When identifying a cooperative purchasing contract, it is important to research each contract to identify if a cooperative utilizes processes that meet public procurement standards, has sufficient oversight, and employs compliance mechanisms or quality controls.

On each contract page, you'll see our due diligence box in the right corner. The information highlighted in this area are the key items that will help you determine if the contract solicitation process meets your requirements. To assist with this process, the following resources are available.
