The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN) is a national governmental purchasing cooperative able to leverage one of the largest pools of purchasing potential. Contracts are bid on and awarded to national vendors, in accordance with purchasing procedures mandated by state procurement laws and regulations. This means equal pricing for the smallest entities and the largest buyers. TCPN contracts are available for use by public and private schools, colleges and universities, cities, counties, non-profits and all governmental entities.
Participation in TCPN will provide the legally required competition for contracts on commonly purchased products and services as awards are "best-value contracts" based on quality, proven performance, and most importantly pricing.
The TCPN mission is to help other governmental entities operate efficiently and economically. For an end-user, utilizing a TCPN contract means dealing directly with the vendor, using the TCPN contract as your own. However, in order to use the TCPN contract, an end-user must become a member of The Cooperative Purchasing Network. It's free of any charges to the end-user and only requires a simple membership enrollment form. Click here to join TCPN
Contract details and pricing information are available on the TCPN website.
The pricing we have agreed to is as follows:
35% off Paragon Furniture Price List No. 28 (2011). Freight and installation services are not included in the pricing agreement. Charges for these are negotiated separately by servicing dealer.
Contract terms allow PO’s to be sent directly to the servicing dealer and must reference “Per TCPN Contract.”
Hopefully this helps to start answering some of your questions about TCPN. We hope this is another useful tool we are providing to make selling Paragon Furniture easier.
Thanks and please let us know if you have additional questions.
Very best regards,
