By leveraging public-sector demand for essential products, the Keystone Purchasing Network delivers better, competitive prices while lowering total cost of acquisition

Join the purchasing cooperative that makes your agency more efficient

Agencies that become members of the Keystone Purchasing Network achieve product savings at a lower cost of acquisition. KPN members and their buyers serve their organizations with greater value as they take advantage of more efficient and effective purchasing methodologies.

Faithful to the word "cooperative," KPN serves as your partner, working with you to identify needed commodities and services. We are your champion for competitive bid pricing and your advocate for fair terms and conditions. We minimize your work and better scale procurement procedures to bring you respected and responsible vendors with wide-ranging quality products. The result is that you can buy immediately from a trusted supplier without having to go to bid yourself.

The benefits of KPN’s cooperative services come to you by way of a free membership. School districts, colleges, universities, cities, counties, special districts, and non-profits all qualify for membership, the trigger that activates your legal authority to use one of KPN’s many competitive purchasing contracts.

Scores of purchasing opportunities await KPN members, with competitively bid contracts in categories ranging from supplies to furniture and from facilities to technology. Each of the purchasing contracts available to you is the result of a competitive solicitation, fair evaluation, and exacting standards for public procurement.
