COOPERATIVE PURCHASING PROGRAMS

Cooperative contract use is a growing trend for governmental purchases, thanks to its simple process and time-saving benefits. As members, governmental agencies have access to competitively awarded contracts for numerous categories of equipment, supplies and services.

SOURCEWELL CONTRACT

Sourcewell, one of North America's largest governmental cooperative contracting agencies, has awarded two competitively solicited contracts to Caterpillar.

Category: Construction and Agricultural Equipment
Category: Energy Solutions (Power Generators)

Sourcewell allows you the opportunity to access competitively awarded nationally leveraged cooperative purchasing contracts for life.

There is no fee to join Sourcewell, no obligation, and no liability.

As a Sourcewell member, you can select from over 120 models spanning 14 product families, including Cat machines, generator sets, and switchgear. In addition to a broad selection of products, Stowers delivers the exceptional customer service and product support you expect.


SOURCEWELL AWARDS CATERPILLAR HIGHEST SCORE IN NEW CONTRACT

In its recently awarded, competitively solicited construction and agricultural equipment contract, the Sourcewell awarded Caterpillar its highest competitive score. As part of the process, responses from equipment companies were evaluated against multiple criteria to help governmental agencies determine the best value when making purchase decisions. Caterpillar's response - which included considerations such as pricing, customer service, warranties and others - was scored the highest among all nine equipment manufacturers who submitted responses.

In addition to new machine sales, the newly awarded contract allows Stowers Machinery and other Cat dealers to sell parts, service, and used equipment, and to rent machines.

"We are very happy to give our governmental customers a great option to use [Sourcewell] when purchasing machines," says Ann Schreifels, Caterpillar Governmental Sales Manager. "Cooperative contracts are a growing tool that purchasing professionals can use to make sure they are getting the best value for their budget. We are extremely proud to have received the highest score."

Buying through cooperative purchasing agreements saves significant time when governmental agencies do not have to re-issue a local public solicitation, and ensures that constituents are getting the most for their money.
