Meeting Date: 07/19/2018  

SUBJECT MATTER:

Receive, consider and act upon approving and authorizing execution of an Interlocal Purchasing Agreement with Conroe Independent School District (C-2018-0375);

FISCAL IMPACT:
There is no anticipated cost related to the execution of the agreement.  There are expected cost savings and efficiencies associated with cooperative purchasing agreements, which cannot be quantified at this time. 

BACKGROUND:
The Township has previously entered into various interlocal cooperative purchasing agreements with cities, counties and other governmental subdivisions, such as Buy Board, HGAC, American Communities, City of Plano, Tarrant County, and most recently Montgomery County.   Interlocal Purchasing Agreements (IPA) such as these provide greater efficiencies for the Township, by reducing staff time spent on developing bid documents, managing a 2-3 month bidding process as well leveraging the purchasing power of larger governmental entities.  The use of purchasing agreements with cities,school districts and other entities ensure the Township complies with its own procurement policy, since items are competitively procured in accordance with applicable state statutes.
 
Legal Counsel has prepared the ILA (Attachment A).
RECOMMENDATION:
Approve the Interlocal Purchasing Agreement with Conroe Independent School District regarding reciprocal purchasing and authorize the President/General Manager to execute the same.
