More than a supplier. We are a partner.

Eliminate the administrative hassle with our Lead Public Agency model.

PPP values transparency and trust with its cooperative participants. Contracts between the lead public agency (LPA) and suppliers are made public, and are scrutinized by an advisory panel of procurement professionals and public sector peers.

Public sector purchasing agents and procurement officials gain access to a cooperative uniquely designed to their needs and circumstances. Navigating the complexities of purchasing requirements and due-diligence is streamlined by sharing in the vetting already performed by a lead public agency.
