This bill would permit certain public institutions of higher education to act as participating contracting units in a cooperative pricing system established pursuant to State law. Under section 11 of P.L.1971, c.198 (C.40A:11-11), the governing bodies of two or more contracting units may establish a cooperative pricing system. "Contracting units" are currently defined to include counties, municipalities, and certain boards, commissions, committees, authorities, or agencies. A "cooperative pricing system" is a purchasing system in which a lead agency advertises for bids; awards a master contract to the vendor providing for its own needs and for prices to be extended to registered members; and notifies the members of the contract awarded. The registered members then contract directly with the vendor for their own needs, subject to the specifications in the master contract. This bill also authorizes public institutions of higher education to make purchases and contract for services through the use of a nationally-recognized and accepted cooperative purchasing agreement, including cooperative purchasing agreements in existence on the effective date of the bill, in accordance with paragraph (3) of subsection b. of section 7 of P.L.1996, c.16 (C.52:34-6.2). This section of law authorizes counties, municipalities, school districts, fire districts, and certain boards and commissions, to make purchases and contract for services through the use of a nationally-recognized and accepted cooperative purchasing agreement that has been developed utilizing a competitive bidding process by another contracting unit within the State or within another state, when available. Prior to making purchases or contracting for services, however, the contracting unit must determine that the use of the cooperative purchasing agreement will result in cost savings after all factors have been considered.
