§                     These contracts will provide for the rental of specialty equipment and tools, such as excavators, backhoes, large trench boxes, and bull dozers, used when completing water and sewer repairs.

§                     North Carolina General Statute 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, including 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.
