What is GSA’s Cooperative Purchasing?
Cooperative Purchasing allows the state and local government to benefit from the GSA Schedule Contract’s simplified procurement process and pre-negotiated pricing.
Through Cooperative Purchasing, the state and local government can buy products and services through select Special Item Numbers under the GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract. These products and services can be purchased at any time for any reason, unlike Disaster Recovery, which only allows purchases in cases of disaster recovery or preparation.
The program was first introduced in 2002 under the GSA IT Schedule 70 Contract, and was expanded six years later to include the GSA Security Schedule 84 Contract. Cooperative Purchasing then became SIN based (as opposed to Schedule based) in 2019 when the 24 individual GSA Schedules were combined into one GSA Multiple Award Schedule (MAS) Contract.
