Cooperative Purchasing Programs

Overview

Forms+Surfaces currently holds two national Cooperative Purchasing contracts. As a co-op member, you can realize significant savings and procurement efficiencies via these publicly solicited and competitively awarded contracts. They provide members with Best Market Pricing and Optimal Terms and Conditions of Sale, while eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming bid solicitations involving your own personnel and resources. It’s Procurement Simplified!

Membership

Membership to both cooperatives is free, quick and easy via basic online application forms. There are no obligations or minimum commitments on behalf of members. As a cooperative member, the quoting and buying process with Forms+Surfaces remains unchanged – the entire transaction is conducted directly with us. We ensure compliance with the cooperative contracts and reporting protocols, while co-op members receive the significant benefits and efficiencies these group procurement contracts have to offer.
