Tips – Buying Co-Operative

Building Abatement Demolition Company, Inc was awarded a vendor contract in 2017 and has completed numerous projects under The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS) program.  The TIPS program is the purchasing system available for use by all public and private schools, colleges, universities, cities, counties, and other government entities. This purchasing coop is where Awarded Vendors and Members both benefit. With a successful award, a vendor can expedite an order for a member because all purchasing requirements are completed during the RFP process. A school district, or other TIPS Member, can benefit from the cost savings of time and expense of the bid process.

The Purpose of TIPS:

Provide school districts and other governmental entities opportunities for greater efficiency and economy in acquiring goods and services. ​Take advantage of state-of-the-art purchasing procedures to insure the most competitive contracts.  Provide competitively priced solicitation and bulk purchasing for multiple government entities that yields economic benefits unobtainable by individual entities.

​Provide quick and efficient delivery of goods and services by contracting with “high performance” vendors. Equalize purchasing power for smaller entities that are not able to command the best contracts for themselves. Maintain credibility and confidence in business procedures by maintaining open competition for purchases and by complying with purchasing laws and ethical business practices.  Assist entities in maintaining the essential controls for budget and accounting purposes.
