§                     The city uses personnel protective equipment; decontamination equipment; detection equipment; medical and first aid supplies; hazardous materials storage; and various other related public safety, law enforcement, and fire equipment required to protect employees providing services to the public.

§                     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, reduced administrative costs, and access to professional and technical expertise.

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