If you are a government or education entity, or a nonprofit organization, there is now an easier way for you to purchase products, equipment, and contract services – Sourcewell.
What is Sourcewell?
Sourcewell is a self-sustaining public government agency based in Minnesota that offers competitively solicited purchasing contracts for products, services, and equipment to its member agencies. The best part is you don’t have to lift a finger in the solicitation process!
With Sourcewell’s cooperative purchasing program, the procurement process is streamlined. The procurement team takes care of the entire competitive solicitation process by carefully and rigorously vetting each contracted vendor through an 8-step solicitation process. All you need to do is find a contracted vendor you like, obtain a quote, and finalize the sale.
What does this mean?
When you become a Sourcewell member agency, you are harnessing the buying power of more than 50,000 government, education, and nonprofit organizations. You also have a list of over 400 awarded supplier contracts in a wide variety of industries to choose from. Also, you will save time in the purchasing process and get a good price.
I’m interested. What now?
To participate in Sourcewell’s cooperative purchasing program, you must first become a member. Becoming a member is easy. There is no cost, no obligation, and no liability. Membership is available to all government entities, public and private K-12 schools, colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations. Registration is also quick and easy. Simply visit the website, and fill out the online registration form. Once your registration is complete, you will receive your official Sourcewell account number. This account number will allow you to quickly make a purchase on any Sourcewell awarded contract.
