What is it?

A variety of arrangements whereby two or more public procurement entities purchase from the same vendor or multiple vendors using an open competitive procurement (RFx).

Why is it important?

By participating in Collaborative Procurement opportunities, the university can:

  • reduce costs
  • generate administrative efficiencies
  • obtain better value

As a Broader Public Sector institution, Carleton University can also benefit through shared knowledge of procurement best practices.
