Compliance Initiative

E&I has spearheaded a number of initiatives to reduce and remove various hurdles that our members face in accessing cooperative agreements.

We recognize that many of our members are dealing with a variety of legislative and regulatory purchasing restrictions. We can help you overcome these hurdles.

We’ve helped members draft legislative amendments, lobby state officials, and even assisted in drafting cooperative purchasing provision for board policies.

We are constantly reviewing our competitive solicitation process to ensure that our contracting methods adhere to the highest standards of public procurement.

All of our members can access cooperative agreements to one extent or another.
Even in the most restrictive states, members can utilize our contracts under the small purchase exemptions or under their respective bid thresholds. If you do not know what your benchmark limits are, we can help by researching the answer for you.

Many states expressly provide exemptions from the bid requirements for cooperative agreements. These exemptions allow you to piggyback off of contracts created by other public institutions or E&I. Don’t know where to find these provisions? No problem, just ask us and we’ll point you in the right direction.

We have also found cooperative purchasing provisions tucked away in Board of Regents or Trustees policies or in public institution policy manuals. These texts may be a good starting point for you in exploring this issue.

Our latest state overview of cooperative purchasing authorization for 4-year public institutions can be found on our compliance map. If you have questions or suggestions on the rules relating to cooperative purchasing in your state, feel free to contact us at compliance@eandi.org. We would be happy to provide you with research or support any cooperative purchasing initiatives that you wish to pursue.
