The Local Government Purchasing Cooperative was created to increase the purchasing power of government entities and to simplify their purchasing by using a customized electronic purchasing system called the BuyBoard.
The Cooperative analyzes and makes award recommendations for products and services that have been submitted for competitive procurement as outlined by state statute.
All awarded items or catalogs will be posted on a secure Web site, called the BuyBoard, so that Cooperative members can search for and select items and order. The BuyBoard is only available to members.
Each user has a security role, defined by the entity, that allows them to shop, create and edit a purchase requisition, approve requisitions, or create and transmit a purchase order to the vendor. Individuals can be assigned multiple roles or a single role, such as a shopper only. Only those individuals with the authority to release a purchase order to a vendor will have the ability to do so.
The other option is to simply fax or e-mail your purchase order to the BuyBoard for input.
Purchase orders are electronically transmitted to the vendor based on the profile selected by the vendor. All purchase order and requisition history is tracked by the BuyBoard and accessible at any time.
