About the Baltimore Regional Cooperative Purchasing Committee
The mission of the Baltimore Regional Cooperative Purchasing Committee (BRCPC) is to:
• Achieve cost savings by combining requirements into cooperative contracts;
• Cooperate to reduce members’ administrative expenses; and
• Serve as a forum for the exchange of resources and technical information.
Savings are realized through purchasing in quantity and consolidating the administrative costs associated with procurement. Members of the BRCPC include purchasing officers from the Baltimore Metropolitan Council’s six member jurisdictions, their school systems, colleges, the City of Annapolis and the Maryland Department of General Services. BRCPC also enjoys an agreement with the Washington Council of Governments to further consolidate procurement activities where appropriate through the Mid-Atlantic Purchasing Team.
The Coordinator for BRCPC is:
