Contract Purchasing Programs
SARM has established a purchasing relationship with Sourcewell, based in Staples, Minnesota, through the Rural Municipalities of Alberta (RMA). The partnership is intended to provide access to Sourcewell’s group buying program, for the purchase of equipment, products and services through a competitively tendered process, to all municipalities in British Columbia, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.
Who is Sourcewell?
Sourcewell is a public agency that offers a multitude of cooperatively contracted products, equipment and service opportunities to over 50,000 member education and government entities throughout North America. Sourcewell completes an 11-step procurement process where contracts are openly tendered on behalf of members. A manufacturer discount is set which creates maximum prices/minimum discounts regardless of the size of the order. Learn more about Sourcewell here: https://www.sourcewell-mn.gov/
Value of Relationship to SARM Members:
- Additional procurement tool for SARM’s members – non-binding and no obligation to purchase.
- Procurement compliance – NWPTA and CFTA compliant. SARM has participated in the process by advertising on the SaskTenders website.
- Access to contracted solutions from many of the top manufacturers and suppliers in the country.
- Members select which vendor they want to buy from.
How to Use the Program
- Contact the vendor of choice and inform them of membership with SARM and the RM’s interest in participating in the program.
- The member will purchase/place any orders through the vendor and pay the vendor directly. The vendor delivers the product and is responsible for applicable warranties.
It is recommended that your municipality publish a declaration of intent to purchase from SARM’s Trading Services on SaskTenders.ca. Click here for more information and to obtain sample wording for creating your municipality’s declaration.
