ACC Cooperative Purchasing Network

The Arkansas Community Colleges’ newly formed purchasing program is known as the ACC Cooperative Purchasing Network (ACC-CPN).  Cooperative procurement solutions offer resource challenged members the opportunity to gain needed operating efficiencies as well as hard dollar savings. The demonstrated effectiveness of cooperative procurement to save taxpayer dollars makes it a viable alternative to conventional, independent procurement processes. The ACC-CPN is a valuable tool to obtain necessary goods and services by aggregating volume, securing best pricing, and reducing administrative overhead.

Vendors may also benefit from this program.  Instead of participating in many bids with the various agencies, they have only one.  The time and expense of going through the competitive solicitation process for each college is avoided.

Members can use the ACC-CPN for any contracts and to the degree of frequency desired.  There are no mandatory usage requirements or fee to join.
