The ValuePoint™ purchasing cooperative program is led by State Procurement Officers. In contrast to many other purchasing cooperatives, ValuePoint™ is a “pure” cooperative. A multi-state team of procurement and subject matter experts cooperate in the creation of the solicitation, which is conducted by a lead state, in full compliance with that state’s laws and procedures, including public notice requirements. With the purchasing leverage of all 50 states, ValuePoint™ contracts consistently offer better contracts at lower costs. In addition, ValuePoint™ contracts are benchmarked and audited by third-party professionals to ensure best-in-class pricing as well as superior terms and conditions.
