TCPN Purchasing Cooperative
The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) is available for use by public and private schools, colleges, universities, cities, counties, and other government entities. Participation provides the legally required competition for contracts for commonly purchased items, and saves the district/charter the cost of going through the competitive process. Vendors with TCPN awarded contracts have agreed to provide the best pricing, terms and conditions available to similar customers. The purpose of TCPN is to provide school districts and other government entities opportunities for greater efficiency and economy in acquiring goods and services. Districts and charter can access the TCPN via the Region 9 website.
