Cooperative procurement has become a widely accepted practice to help local and state governments save time and money. This practice has evolved to cover many products and services fire departments need to purchase. This means fire chiefs and commissioners have another tool to save money and reduce overhead while ensuring they get the products they want for their department. Participants will learn how cooperative procurement programs work and how they can be utilized. Available cooperative purchasing options will be reviewed.

Elements Covered:
  • Public procurement trends
  • Defining cooperative procurement
  • Understanding how cooperative procurement works
  • Discuss best practices in cooperative procurement
