Utilizing the Choice Partners cooperative contract will allow us to respond more quickly, thoroughly, and efficiently to the needs of cooperative members...
Houston, TX (PRWEB) June 18, 2013
Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. (CAPS), a leading commercial and industrial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) company based in Houston, Texas was recently awarded vendor status in the HCDE Choice Partners cooperative.
Choice Partners is a national cooperative that offers quality services, legal procurement and contract solutions for governmental entities including school districts, private and charter schools, colleges and universities, municipalities, counties and nonprofits.
“Cooperative purchasing contracts are win-win-win,” explains Choice Partners Executive Director Les Hooper. “Our members benefit from the time and leveraged cost savings in procurement, our vendors benefit by having an awarded contract that has been competitively procured, and the cooperative wins by receiving a small percentage for their work in bidding, awarding and managing the contract.”
Although Custom Air Products & Services, Inc. has performed work over the past few years for school districts, universities, and other municipalities and government entities, they have done so outside of the Choice Partners’ cooperative program. Participating as a cooperative vendor offers some distinct advantages for CAPS as well as for the cooperative member organizations that utilize their products and services.
“We are really looking forward to participating in this cooperative,” says the CAPS Sales Associate responsible for handling Choice Partners projects, Neal Robichau. “Utilizing the Choice Partners cooperative contract will allow us to respond more quickly, thoroughly, and efficiently to the needs of cooperative members and to move directly into the quoting process for potential projects since the bid process has already been completed. Qualifying to win an award was a long and complex procedure, but well worth the effort since the qualification has given us a head start in meeting state of Texas requirements and allows us to make our services immediately available to cooperative members nationwide.”
