The Cranford Police Cooperative Pricing System (ID# 47CPCPS) was established in December 1993 and is registered with the Division of Local Government Services. Included among our membership are counties, municipalities, local authorities and other contracting units. Cooperative Purchasing has demonstrated a strong ability to serve as an effective tool to assist local officials save taxpayer dollars. Our system represents a viable alternative to the conventional “go-it-alone” bidding process. It holds great appeal insofar as lower bids may be expected when higher quantities can be aggregated.
“Cooperative Pricing” can be defined as a purchasing system in which a Lead Agency advertises for bids; awards a master contract to the vendor providing for its own needs and for the prices to be extended to registered members; and notifies the members of the contract awarded. The registered members then contract directly with the vendor for their own needs, subject to the specifications in the master contract.
