As a service cooperative, NJPA provides regional support programs and national cooperative purchasing contracts to all levels of government, E-12 schools, higher education institutions and non-profit entities across North America.

Cooperative purchasing contracts are awarded at the conclusion of a procurement process following Minnesota’s municipal contracting law.

NJPA’s cooperative purchasing program offers competitively solicited purchasing contracts available for use by any government and non-profit entity through joint powers/cooperative purchasing laws in their respective jurisdictions.

NJPA is governed by an eight-member board made up of county commissioners, city council members, mayors, or school board members.
