Joint Purchasing Program
The Washtenaw County Purchasing Division, on behalf of the Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners, is continuing its Joint Purchasing Program for non-profits and municipalities.
Goals of the Program
One goal of this program is to introduce Washtenaw County Vendors to local 501-c(3) non-profits and municipalities for a mutual benefit.
Another goal of this program is to introduce vendors to non-profits and municipalities for a mutual benefit. We help promote this program by coordinating Vendor Shows.
We have requested our vendors extend our current pricing to participating Washtenaw County non-profits and municipalities. Each 501-c(3) agency would then be responsible for placing their orders and processing invoices directly with the vendors. All goods and services would be delivered to 501-c(3) agency locations.
Joining the Program
To join the program (separate from a Vendor Show) you must fill out an application form. This form must have an authorized signer of the 501-c(3) organization or municipality. Return the application to the Washtenaw County Purchasing Division via email or fax 734-222-6764.
Once your application has been received and approved, you will be sent information containing a listing of participating vendors, contact names, email addresses and phone numbers. Contact the vendor of choice to set-up an account and be sure to let them know your organization participates in the Washtenaw County Joint Purchasing Program. It will then be the decision of the non-profit or municipality to accept or reject the terms and conditions set forth in the Washtenaw County contract. The Purchasing Division urges all shoppers to compare goods and prices to be certain of receiving the goods at the best possible price.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Beth Duffy at 734-222-6761 or via email.
Washtenaw County incurs no liability or responsibility for invoices or commodities derived from this program.
