An RFP process can take months of your time. And, in the end, you may be stuck with low quality products from the low bidder. But what if you didn’t have to go out to bid? What if you could…

· avoid the bid process altogether and work with your preferred vendor?

· take advantage of current deals ─ deals that might not be available while you’re wading through a full bid process?

· easily satisfy compliance requirements?

You can when you work with us and “piggyback” off of our TIPS contract! Every state currently allows this practice.

It’s a simple and cost saving way for you to procure products.

As a TIPS awarded vendor we can offer our products at a discounted rate and convenient manor – without you having to go out to bid again, as the contract was already competitively bid by TIPS.

The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS) is a national purchasing cooperative that offers access to competitively procured purchasing contracts to its membership. If you’re not currently a TIPS member signing up is simple, free and without obligation. Go to, click on the member’s tab, and follow the instructions to sign up. Again, membership is free and does not obligate you to purchase from us.
