The competitive sealed solicitation is lengthy, time consuming, and expensive - that's why CPC does it for you!
When CPC undergoes the competitive sealed solicitation process, it's as though you - as a CPC member - have gone through the process yourself. That's why our procurement coordinator conducts extensive research into every contract, why our evaluation committees come together several times before recommending that a vendor be awarded a place on the CPC contract, and why we make our contract audit packets publicly available on PurchasingConnection.org.
See for yourself! Just navigate to a vendor's CPC profile page and look on the right side of the page for a link to their audit packet!
