Sharing resources through cooperative purchasing that also features a community discussion forum allows local agencies to leverage knowledge and information from peers throughout the state,” added Bob Telles, the City of Las Cruces’ Purchasing Manager and Agency leader with the New Mexico Purchasing Group.
