Welcome to Minnesota's Office of State Procurement Cooperative Purchasing Opportunities

Minnesota's Cooperative Purchasing Venture (CPV), established by Minn. Stat. 16C.03, subd.10, allows eligible entities to purchase goods, certain services and utilities from contracts established by the Office of State Procurement (OSP) for Minnesota state agencies. OSP contracts with vendors to provide goods, services and utilities to state agencies. This program creates a legal relationship so that eligible governmental entities can use these contracts just like state agencies. Minnesota Statutes 471.59, subd. 1, known as the Joint Powers Act, defines the governmental entities that may join the CPV program. They include counties, cities, towns, townships, and school districts, as well as other entities. Minn. Stat. 16C.105 adds certain tax-exempt, non-profit entities and charitable organizations to the list of entities eligible to use these contracts.

Legislation passed in the 2009 Legislative Session encourages all municipalities defined in Minn. Stat. 471.345 to utilize the state's contracts available under the Cooperative Purchasing Venture. For your convenience, we are providing this list of State Contracts Available to Cooperative Purchasing Venture Members. The list is updated frequently.
