Welcome to Purchasing Solutions Alliance

Purchasing Solutions Alliance (PSA) is a nationwide purchasing cooperative for public agencies.

Cooperative Purchasing combines the purchasing power of agencies nationwide to leverage the benefits of volume purchases. Cooperative Purchasing Contracts can be negotiated with significantly lower pricing because vendors know that sales will be significantly higher. Cooperative Purchasing has the added benefit of saving you time and resources by relieving you of the burden of procurement documentation requirements, advertisement costs, and contract management.
