National Cooperative Purchasing Program Available to Nonprofits

The Fairfax County Department of Purchasing and Supply Management invites representatives from nonprofit organizations interested in learning how to save money on a variety of commonly used products to attend "Making a Difference in Our Communities: Contracts for Nonprofits," a presentation on the U.S. Communities national cooperative purchasing program. The program will be held Thursday, March 25, from 8:30 to 11 a.m. in the Board Auditorium of the Fairfax County Government Center, 12000 Government Center Parkway, Fairfax. Registration and networking begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by the conference program from 9 to 11 a.m.

U.S. Communities, organized in cooperation with local government purchasing officials, pools the purchasing power of public agencies, achieves bulk volume discounts on behalf of public agencies, competitively solicits quality products through a lead public agency and provides a purchasing forum for public agencies nationwide. Nonprofits can participate in this national cooperative purchasing program at no cost.

There are a number of product lines available from a variety of suppliers, including office supplies, carpet and flooring, office furniture, procurement cards, office machines, and technology products and services.

The March 25 program is free, but space is limited. To register, visit www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpsm/osb/registration.htm, type March 25, 2004, in the date field and complete other information as requested.
