There has always been power in numbers. The same holds true with cooperative contracts. Continental Flooring has been serving the government, state, and federal agencies for more than 40 years. Our decades of experience and expertise with procurement will make buying a snap. Continental is proud to offer a wide selection of goods under a number of cooperative contracts. Cooperative contracts are competitively bid and awarded, and since agencies don’t have to go through this lengthy process, costs are lower, and purchasing is faster and easier. Other cooperative contract benefits include:
- A wide variety of products available from an awarded supplier.
- Contracts are preapproved: Once an agency adopts a cooperative contract, buyers can easily purchase items on contract without having to seek additional purchasing approval.
- Value pricing.
- Smaller agencies can take advantage of purchasing power typically reserved for large buyer.
Buying through 1GPA
The 1 Government Procurement Alliance (1GPA) is a non-profit national governmental purchasing cooperative which allows public agencies to avoid the lengthy bidding process and take advantage of existing contracts to purchase the goods and services from local and national vendors at value prices. 1GPA’s pooled purchasing power means public and private schools, cities, counties, and state agencies, as well as colleges, universities and Native American communities can utilize all our contracts.
Continental Flooring’s 1GPA Contract harnesses purchasing power and the established public contracts mean governmental entities can save actual budget dollars utilizing best business practices. And, as required by law, 1GPA contracts are awarded in compliance with all state mandated procurement regulations. Teaming with 1GPA on a nationwide contract affords Continental Flooring the opportunity to extend our expertise in government procurement and alliances with top manufacturers to many facilities who may not otherwise be able to take advantage of direct contract pricing.
