Government Purchasing Cooperative

OASBO is proud to have the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance as a Benchmark Program Provider. U.S. Communities is the leading national government purchasing cooperative that reduces the cost of goods and services by aggregating the purchasing power of public agencies nationwide. U.S. Communities provides participants with access to a broad line of competitively solicited contracts with national suppliers that have committed to providing their best overall public agency pricing.

An impartial lead public agency competitively solicits, evaluates and awards all contracts in accordance with their public purchasing rules and regulations. Applying these competitive principles satisfies the competitive bid requirements of most state and local government agencies.

U.S. Communities is proud to be the only government purchasing cooperative organization founded by public agencies for public agencies. Additionally, U.S. Communities is overseen by an Advisory Board of key public procurement professionals.
