“Cooperative purchasing has always provided Austin Public School District with great products at a fair price. This was no different when we decided to install UBU synthetic turf on two of our athletic fields through Kiefer U.S.A. The solicitation process was straight forward because the pricing structure is transparent and the customer service was second to none. We were able to install the product we wanted, at a competitive price and within the construction schedule that met the district’s expectations. ”- Mat Miller, Director of Facility Services, Austin Public School District"I have been using Crescent Landscapes Supply through SSC for engineered wood fiber the past four years and could not be happier. The wood fiber is excellent quality at a great price. The people at Crescent are very easy to work with. They drop at the correct locations and work with you to wait for a dry time for the ground to firm up. I highly recommend Crescent Landscapes Supply."-Steve Anderson, Director of Facilities and Transportation, Albert Lea Public School District"Utilizing an SSC CPC contract was vital to our school district in getting a job done well and quickly. After our high school gym flooded over the Labor Day weekend, we needed to quickly determine our options and move forward with a plan. In sharing multiple ways to proceed to our school board, it was clear that using an SSC CPC contract was the most efficient and cost effective way to go. Having already gone through the RFP process the CPC saved us weeks on the length of the project. This was very important so that we could get phy. ed. classes and evening sports into the gym as fast as possible."

"Working for a small city with limited resources, I am always trying to keep the cost of government in check and keep costs reasonable. Easy comparison shopping from several sources with a keystroke allowed me to reduce the time spent and ensure good value for the supplies we can purchase through Express. And, as an added bonus, the supplies I ordered arrived at my desk in less than 24 hours later. Awesome!"
-John H. Rolf, Clerk-Treasurer, City of Carlos
Richfield Public Works used CPC vendor SwedeBro to resurface their concrete floor. The process to use the contract took 20 minutes to save 20 hours of time and nearly $20,000 on the project. "We are very pleased."
