NetX Awarded Costars Contract
NetX is pleased to announce our connection with Costars.
COSTARS is the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania's cooperative purchasing program and serves as a conduit through which registered and eligible local public procurement units (LPPUs) and state-affiliated entities (together "Members") are able to leverage contracts established by DGS to cost-effectively and efficiently identify suppliers with whom to do business.
The Commonwealth Procurement Code provides the statutory authority for Member entities to engage in cooperative purchasing with the Commonwealth. The Procurement Code authorizes DGS to enter into cooperative purchasing contracts solely for the use of its Members. DGS requires eligible LPPUs and state-affiliated entities to register as COSTARS members, and only those organizations registered with DGS may purchase from the contract. Several thousand potential purchasers are already registered with DGS as COSTARS members.
