The Benefits of Purchasing Through Contracts
At Playcraft Systems, we understand that agencies need to procure products and services as quickly and economically as possible, without sacrificing quality. That is why we offer a variety of national purchasing contracts at your disposal. These contracts satisfy all bidding requirements, allowing you to skip the burden of the bid process. Instead, simply register your company with the national purchasing cooperative, find something that you like in the Playcraft Systems catalog, and place your order. It is as simple as that!
How Purchasing Cooperatives Work
Purchasing cooperatives allow the buyer to bypass the bid process completely. This is done by the national purchasing agency bidding the cooperative contract competitively with a strict procedure of requirements. Vendors compete on this bid and a selected quantity of awardees are chosen based upon meeting all requirements. This bid process allows the end customer to receive the best deal on the products or services stated within the contract. All that is required by the purchaser is to be registered with that national purchasing agency, which can easily be done by visiting their website and filling out the required fields on their registration form.

The Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA) is a cooperative purchasing contract that leverages the purchasing power to benefit all schools regardless of size. This nation-wide purchasing option streamlines the bidding process through a single purchasing solicitation. Due to AEPA's national coverage, it can provide the end user of the contract an aggressive price on their purchasing needs.
PUBLIC PROCUREMENT AUTHORITY
The Public Procurement Authority (PPA) is a public entity in the
State of Oregon formed by an Intergovernmental Agreement pursuant to
Oregon Revised Statutes Chapter 190 (Intergovernmental Cooperation). The PPA was formed to provide procurement opportunities to its members as well as members participating in the National Purchasing Partners
(NPPGov) national cooperative purchasing program. State statutes generally allow government entities to use contracts that have been competitively solicited by a different government entity even if it is in a different state. Both parties must enter into an Intergovernmental
Cooperative Purchasing Agreement which has been executed by the PPA and is available to all NPP members.
