COSTARS for Newbies - Organizations interested in the program should not miss this.  Viewers will learn about the benefits of becoming a member and see a detailed demo on how to search COSTARS-Exclusive and Statewide COSTARS-participating contracts.



Statewide Contracts - Missing Pieces - Many COSTARS members actively use COSTARS-exclusive contracts to purchase competitively priced products and services.

If you do not also utilize the statewide, COSTARS-participating contracts in your procurement strategy, this is a must-see session!  Members have access to many statewide contracts that provide them with more procurement options and maximize their negotiating power.  We'll explore these missing pieces to complete your procurement puzzle.
