Contracts that were competitively sourced by USF Procurement are available to view:
Cooperative contracts are competitively bid agreements between the government and suppliers to lower the costs of procuring goods or services that higher education institutions commonly need. When the contract and procurement process is shared the result is lower administrative costs so suppliers can offer greater discounts on commodities/services. Departments also spend less time searching for quotes.
Cooperatives carry contracts on a variety of resources including office peripherals, laboratory and other equipment and maintenance supplies and technology peripherals.
For help using co-operative agreements, please contact any Procurement Agent or Strategic Sourcing Analyst in Procurement Services.
