Cooperative Purchasing Contracts

Act # 2009-763 was passed in the Alabama legislature allowing state governmental entities to enter into joint purchasing agreements for the purchase of materials, equipment, supplies, and services which have been let by competitive bid or competitive solicitation process by any group or consortium of government entities  or through a group purchasing organization within or without the State of Alabama upon a finding by the institution that such purchasing agreements are in the best interest of the institution. The University now has access to such contracts for a variety of goods and services as listed below. Please note that purchases via Cooperative Purchasing Contracts are exempt from biding, but still require all mandatory departmental approvals.

Accessing the referenced vendor sites allow you to either obtain electronic contractual pricing quotations for the creation of orders or place orders on-line, depending on the contract and vendor. The corresponding joint purchasing contract number must be indicated on each purchase order and/or LPO.

Important: All PC's must be procured via the USA Campus Bookstore or any one of the listed cooperative purchasing contracts including CDWG, GovConnection, or Office Depot. Dell products are to be procured via the GovConnection E&I Cooperative contract. Apple product purchases are considered an approved sole source when purchased directly from Apple Inc.

Please contact the USA Purchasing at (251) 460.6151 if you have any questions.
