OPFMA Annual Conference & Trade Show

The Ohio Public Facilities Maintenance Association (OPFMA) is bringing two days of informative presentations to the Buckeye State for its annual conference and trade show. This year, attendees can expect to hear sessions on energy efficiency, technology updates and health and safety policies. While you’re there, be sure to attend our presentation, “Elevate Your Construction Procurement Through Cooperatives.”


Procurement officials typically use cooperative purchasing agreements for acquiring supplies, equipment and other services. Using cooperative purchasing of construction services, specifically Job Order Contracting (JOC), can streamline an otherwise burdensome process. With JOC, government officials access competitively-awarded, local contractors available to start work immediately, saving valuable time.


This presentation covers the growth, trends and best practices of purchasing construction through cooperatives. Hear lessons learned and examples of successful projects procured via co-ops.
