Cooperative Purchasing Exemption
NC S.L. 2001-328, effective January 1, 2002, authorizes competitive group purchasing.

* The city is responsible for the operations and maintenance of various types of municipal facilities, structures, and assets across its facilities portfolio including office, warehouse, and storage space; unique facilities for public safety and vehicle maintenance; and communication towers.
* Anixter Inc. stocks parts and supplies that are no longer readily available from other sources including parts and equipment for door access control systems and electronic locks.
* 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 that can be utilized on a local, regional, and national level.
* Total estimated annual expenditures are $100,000.
