TIPS Overview

The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS)

The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS), allows Education, Government and Non-Profit Agencies to purchase from any of their Awarded Vendors without having to competitively solicit and procure the products and services themselves.

Established with over a decade of experience in the purchasing procurement industry, TIPS makes purchasing for their Members easy, compliant and economical.

Their competitively bid contracts streamline the purchasing process, eliminating stress, and saving Members both time and money. This process offers opportunities for greater efficiency in pricing and delivery of goods and services by contracting with their high quality Vendors, like Datamax.
