Elite Sports Builders is pleased to announce that we have been awarded TCPN (The Cooperative Purchasing Network) / National IPA Purchasing Cooperative Contract for another sports surfaces, installation, and related materials through 2018. TCPN / National IPA brings years of government purchasing experience and a robust portfolio of contracts to Elite’s cooperative purchasing program which offers our clients the ability to “single source” entire turnkey sports facilities to a top-quality contractor with full access to the high-quality products and services they really want.
Elite’s IntelliBuy Purchasing Program is comprised of multiple Cooperative Purchasing Agencies, including 1GPA (Government Procurement Alliance), NCPA (National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance) and the National IPA / TCPN. IntelliBuy’s sole purpose is to help our clients identify the most compatible purchasing mechanism for their project needs. Sports facility construction purchasing can be a costly, complicated, and time-consuming process that rarely produces desired results. Unforeseen issues and delays frequently plague the normal “bidding” process utilized by school districts, educational organizations, and government agencies.
This process often takes many months to procure a project with multiple stage purchasing issues including investigation, design, and specifications followed by bid advertising, pre-bid conferencing, addendums, waiting periods and other delays. This traditional procedure often yields a non-responsible bid by an inexperienced or under-qualified contractor who may produce a sub-quality product.
With IntelliBuy, Elite’s clients can rest assured knowing that all legal due diligence has been completed for them, simplifying the purchasing process while also providing access to maximum pre-determined pricing structures with volume purchasing discounts.
These cooperative purchasing systems allow our customers to purchase Turf Fields, Running Tracks, and Tennis & Basketball Courts along with a complement of facility construction and maintenance services.
With access to over 48,000 competitively evaluated, nationally-recognized suppliers and manufacturers alone, the TCPN / National IPA Purchasing Cooperative Contract is sure to provide Elite’s clients with more economic buying opportunities in addition to saving them time, money and the frustration of an ineffective bid process.
