E&I Host: David Manz, Business Partnerships Manager, Facilities & Interiors
Guest: Tammy Rimes, MPA, Executive Director of NCPP
"Cooperative purchasing is not just for procurement, so if you're listening to this and you're from facilities maintenance or public works or student services or you're part of the faculty, and you do any kind of purchasing, then you need to learn about cooperative purchasing because it truly is a tool that you need to take advantage of."
Join David for Part 1 of this two-part episode featuring special guest Tammy Rimes, Executive Director of National Cooperative Procurement Partners. In this episode, we discuss what exactly is a purchasing cooperative and how cooperative contracts benefit procurement -- and any buyers on your campus.
Cooperatively Speaking is hosted by E&I Cooperative Services, the only member-owned, non-profit procurement cooperative exclusively focused on serving the needs of education. Visit our website at www.eandi.org/podcast.
