The SmartBuy Cooperative Purchasing Program is comprised of multiple Cooperative Purchasing entities, such as The Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), The Cooperative Purchasing Network (TCPN), The Keystone Purchasing Network (KPN), Sourcewell (formerly National Joint Powers Alliance - NJPA), The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA), Educational and Institutional Cooperative (E&I) and the BuyBoard.


Through these Cooperatives, customers can purchase Tarkett Sports surfaces across the U.S. on previously bid contracts with preferential pricing. Turnkey solutions are also available through the Alternative Costing Method and RS Means.

Through economies of scale, the Cooperative Purchasing contracts unite schools, municipalities and other public entities from around the country, helping each one of them save valuable time and money for facility enhancement projects. They work on the organization's behalf to secure multistate volume purchasing contracts. These contracts provide measurable and cost effective benefits.  Download a SmartBuy Program brochure here.
