Cooperative Purchasing

Under Cooperative Purchasing state and local government entities may purchase a variety of products and services from competitively bid contracts.  These contracts generally include participation by a number of entities seeking to leverage the opportunity for volume purchases resulting in lower procurement costs.  

The Town of Glastonbury participates in cooperative purchasing when it is in the best interest of the Town. Links to some of the contracts that are open for our participation are listed below:
