What is BuyBoard?
The BuyBoard National Purchasing Cooperative lets you save time and money while purchasing the products you use every day. BuyBoard was developed to comply with state laws which require government entities to make purchases from an approved list of vendors who have gone through a competitive bidding process. It gives municipalities the advantage of leveraging the cooperative's ability to get volume discounts and combines it with the ease of online, web-based shopping and ordering. Purchase everything from pencils to public works equipment, and everything in between.
What Does It Cost To Participate?
Participation is free of charge, and there is no minimum purchase.
How Much Time Will It Take To Purchase?
BuyBoard contracts have already been through a competitive procurement process, saving members that time and cost of bid preparation. In many states, a purchasing cooperative enables public entities, governed by competitive bidding requirements, to take advantage of bids awarded by the cooperative. The National Purchasing Cooperative leverages the power of a nationwide network of purchasers to drive down prices of commodities, goods, and services by providing the successful bidder(s) the opportunity for a higher quantity of sales.
One-stop shopping and ordering online is the ultimate timesaver. Members can place ordres on the secure website or fax purchase orders for same-day processing. Searches by vendor or product type are simple and speedy on buyboard.com.
