Cooperative Purchasing Contacts

  • The Cooperative Purchasing Program at SWWC can help you fulfill your purchasing needs while making your buying process more efficient. All of our vendor agreements are the result of formal bids or negotiated contracts. By partnering with reputable vendors and combining the purchasing power of service cooperative members across the state, we are able to offer you a wide variety of high quality products and services with excellent volume discounts.
