PCA is committed to providing innovative 'BEST VALUE' contracts, employing the highest ethical standards in public procurement, and providing time and money savings for all PCA Members!

Membership is FREE for educational institutions, government agencies, indian tribal governments, hospitals, law enforcement, and non-profit, non-taxed organizations in all 50 States and the U.S. territories.

PCA combines the benefits of specialty, local, and regional co-ops into a national procurement program appealing to national companies with the value of industry “BEST PRACTICE”. PCA staff combines its experience in contracting, purchasing, and writing Requests for Proposals (RFP) and Requests for Qualifications (RFQ) to provide some of the most technically innovative contracts available for buildings and facilities for PCA Members.

MEMBERS BENEFIT because PCA understands the needs of small as well as large public purchasing departments and their limits on time, personnel and expertise.

VENDORS BENEFIT by having a multi-year contract and by saving the time and expense of preparing responses to individual solicitations from numerous individual governmental and nonprofit entities.

Region 3 ESC awards and holds PCA contracts and administers the PCA procurement program.
