TCPN is a national purchasing cooperative, leveraging one of the largest pools of purchasing potential.  Contracts offer school districts the purchasing power many are unable to command for themselves – small entities recieve the same pricing as the largest buyers.

TCPN  maintains contracts with national vendors for commonly purchased products and services allowing entities to make compliant purchases at a valued rate.  TCPN provides contracts that are competitively bid, evaluated, and awarded by a government entity serving in the lead agency role. Purchasing through a cooperative has proven to reduce administrative and production costs, increase efficiencies and stretch shrinking budgets during difficult times.

Utilizing a TCPN contract means you deal directly with the vendor as you would normally, using the TCPN contract as your own.
