 Explanation

§                     City departments require various maintenance, repair, and operating supplies for daily operations, including but not limited to hardware, hand tools, material handling products, motor and hydraulic parts, lighting, pumps, fasteners, lumber, and appliances.

§                     G.S. 143-129(e)(3) allows local governments to purchase from formally organized cooperative purchasing contracts.

§                     A cooperative purchasing agreement results from the consolidation and competitive solicitation of multiple public agency requirements. By aggregating common needs, all agencies are able to leverage economies of scale, such as volume discounts, improved terms, and conditions; reduce administrative costs; and access professional and technical expertise.

§                     Total annual expenditures are estimated to be $2,500,000.
