Cooperative Purchasing with Duro-Last®

Cooperative Purchasing with Duro-Last®

Save Time and Resources with Duro-Last's Cooperative Purchasing Program

Get more value with less red tape by utilizing Duro-Last’s streamlined procurement contract with The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS-USA). Through this contract, Duro-Last, along with local contractors authorized to install Duro-Last Roofing Systems, will deliver comprehensive roofing and roof asset management solutions designed to reduce your cost of procuring installed roofing systems and services.

What Is TIPS?

TIPS-USA is a national purchasing cooperative which leverages the purchasing power of governmental entities. It is available for use by more than 90,000 public and private schools, colleges, universities, cities, counties and nonprofit agencies. Through a single-lead agency commissioned by the Texas State Legislature, Region 8 Education Service Center (ESC), TIPS bids and awards contracts to vendors in accordance with procedures mandated by state procurement laws and regulations.

The Cooperative Purchasing Advantage

Because Duro-Last holds the contract with TIPS, local contractors authorized to install Duro-Last Roofing Systems work directly with Duro-Last to develop and submit comprehensive proposals for consideration. Public agencies save significant time and money by accessing a contract which has been awarded by a lead government agency. The ability to purchase direct off of a contract saves many of the costs associated with the traditional bid process.
