MASMS Fall Conference

The MASMS Fall Conference brings together K-12 facilities professionals for fun, networking and 41 educational sessions and roundtable discussions. Gordian will be presenting “Cooperative Purchasing for Construction: Streamlined, Faster, Better” to help facility management teams learn the power of cooperative purchasing.


K-12 procurement officials use co-op agreements for buying supplies, equipment and other services—but using co-ops for procuring construction services has been overlooked. This alternative procurement method is a rising trend as it can save time and money by providing access to competitively-awarded, local contractors who can start work immediately. This presentation provides case studies that highlight how cooperative purchasing expedites repair, alteration and modernization efforts, allowing for decreased downtime.
