As a public safety or local government leader, you know what equipment and services you need to serve your community safely and responsibly. Yet how often does the purchasing process get bogged down, delayed by cumbersome requirements and misunderstandings? Increasingly, cooperative purchasing is being used to expedite the buying process, combining the purchasing power of thousands of agencies into a single cooperative group. 

Join Crosby Grindle, a former fire chief officer and group purchasing expert, and Leslie Goral, Sourcewell Supplier Development Administrator, to learn about how cooperative purchasing can help your agency create efficiencies and savings. 

You’ll learn:  

  • What cooperative purchasing is—and isn’t—and how it can open doors to obtaining the resources you need
  • How to utilize cooperative purchasing while ensuring compliance with state and local laws within your respective jurisdiction
  • Details on a cooperative purchasing agreement through Sourcewell that provides agencies an easy way to purchase Lexipol's policy, online learning and wellness solutions--as well as products from 500+ other suppliers
