HAS NEVER BEEN
The SmartBuy Cooperative Purchasing Program can help you get the sports surfacing application you want through the Tarkett Sports family's leading brands; FieldTurf, Beynon Sports, Renner Sports and Tarkett Sports Indoor. All at the best available price
- without duplicating the bid process.
Cooperative Purchasing Program
The SmartBuy Cooperative Purchasing Program is comprised of multiple National Cooperative Purchasing Agencies, such as The Association of Educational Purchasing Agencies (AEPA), California Multiple Award Schedule (CMAS), General Services Administration (GSA), OMNIA Partners, Sourcewell, Buy Board Cooperative Purchasing, Keystone Purchasing Network (KPN), Educational and Institutional Cooperative (E&I), The Interlocal Purchasing System (TIPS), National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and COSTARS Cooperative Purchasing Program.
Through these Cooperatives, customers can purchase FieldTurf, synthetic turf, Beynon running tracks and tennis/basketball courts across the U.S. on previously bid contracts with preferential pricing. Turnkey solutions are available with these Cooperatives through the alternative costing method, R.S. Means and the Unit Price Book (UPB).
Over 2000 customers have used this method to purchase their sports surface(s) and related site work preparation. Finding strength in numbers, the Cooperative Purchasing contracts unite schools and municipalities from around the country, helping each one of them save valuable time and money for facility enhancement projects. They work on the organization’s behalf to secure multistate volume purchasing contracts. These contracts provide measurable and cost effective benefits.
NO ADDITONAL COST
SmartBuy has already been
competitively bid through a sealed-bid process and it includes pre-negotiated prices for the best products from FieldTurf and Beynon. No need to settle for low quality systems through the public bid process.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS THINK
The primary advantage of using SmartBuy is that the district is relieved from the burden of the lengthy RFP process. The fact that vendors have already been selected through an audited competitive bid process ensures that selected vendors are legitimate and can perform the job. The track and field has been a tremendous asset to the community. Our girls’ track team has had two consecutive state championships.

The SmartBuy process allowed us to expedite the purchase process. We did not have to extend ourselves beyond our knowledge base to establish specifications for bid purposes and then compare products (apples and oranges) to determine what we knew we already wanted. We do not have a legal team to review multiple bids, proposals, and contracts. We did our homework, discussed synthetic surfaces with numerous vendors and customers, and made our decision.

“Using Cooperative Purchasing saved us time and money. After significant research, it was clear that our district could get the products that we felt best met the needs and wants
of our kids without having to worry
about the bid process.”
