Cooperative Purchasing

Cooperative purchasing can help governmental agencies procure high-quality assets with fewer resources, while benefitting from the support of dependable local dealers. Get Cat® machines, work tools, power systems, trucks and dealer services with agreements from the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) and the City of Tucson (National IPA).

If you procure heavy equipment for states, counties, or other municipalities, you face a host of challenges every day. How do you succeed? Learn how cooperative purchasing may be an effective strategy.
