Local governmental units that wish to register in the Joint Purchasing Program should become familiar with the policies and procedures of the program by reading the Joint Purchasing Manual.
To register for membership, units are required to submit a Joint Purchasing Act Participation Resolution, passed by the governing board, authorizing its purchasing officials to participate in the program. Submitting a resolution does not obligate the governmental unit to procure any items from state contracts. There are no fees required to register or participate in the program.
Please contact the Joint Purchasing Coordinator with any questions.
