COUNCIL ACTION
Motion by Councilmember Moore with a second by Councilmember Brown-Patrick to approve as presented. Motion passes 6-0.
AGENDA ITEM:
Consider an Interlocal agreement between the GoodBuy Purchasing Cooperative and the City of DeSoto for the purpose of Cooperative Purchasing as provided by Interlocal Cooperation Act, Texas Government Code Section 791.001, et seq., and Texas Local Government Code Section 271.102.
BACKGROUND:
The GoodBuy Purchasing Cooperative (“GoodBuy”), is a Purchasing Cooperative authorized by Tex. Gov’t Code  §§ 791.001 et seq.  as amended, operated by the Education Service Center, Region 2 (“Region 2 ESC”), a state agency, as authorized by Texas Education Code (“TEC”) §8.002 and TEC §44.031(a)(4). Section 271.102 of the Texas Local Government Code allows a local government to participate in a Cooperative Purchasing Program with other local government entities. Through this Interlocal agreement, the City of DeSoto will benefit from the lower prices based on the large volume purchase capacity of the GoodBuy Purchasing Cooperative.
FINDINGS:

Due to the high volume of purchases made, resulting in pooling of purchases by several cities, vendors have been able to provide prices lower than each city could have obtained seeking bids separately.  Section 271.102 of the Texas Local Government Code authorizes a local government to participate in a Cooperative Purchasing Program with another local government or a local cooperative organization.
 
FINANCIAL IMPACT:
There is no financial impact for entering into a Cooperative Purchasing Interlocal Agreement.
 
RECOMMENDATION:

Staff recommends Council approve an Inter-local Agreement between the "Good Buy Purchasing" and the City of DeSoto in a Cooperative Purchasing Program for the purpose of purchasing goods and services as provided by Section 271.102 of the Texas Local Government Code.
