The DooDoo Diva's Smells Like Money Podcast – Purchasing Cooperatives: Benefits, Truths, and Misconceptions With Andy Campbell

In this episode, we talk with Andy Campbell of Source Well, about the advantages and process of working with a purchasing cooperative for municipalities and vendors and how they offer cooperative purchasing services to government agencies. Campbell explains that using a cooperative contract allows buyers to avoid duplicating the bid process and purchase the exact equipment or services they need. The episode also touches on the misconceptions surrounding cooperative purchasing and advises vendors to focus on a few reputable cooperatives that align with their customers' preferences. Campbell emphasizes the importance of educating customers about the benefits of cooperative purchasing and suggests understanding their buying process and any existing policies or laws. These and many more will be discussed, learn more as you listen to the episode!

This episode also covers:

  • Advantages of working with purchasing cooperatives

  • Overcoming misconceptions about cooperative purchasing 

  • Is it easy to participate in cooperative contracts?

I hope you find this episode as informative and as exciting as we have.
