Joint Regent Contracts

Cooperative purchasing remains a high priority for the State of Iowa Board of Regents and of the Regent Institutions to realize greater efficiencies and effectiveness.

As appropriate, the Regent Institutions strive to identify and implement joint purchasing contracts, which provide the lowest competitive price consistent with Regent quality and service.

Joint Regent Contracts consolidate like commodities from the institutions into a single contract, minimizing individual institutions’ efforts while maximizing commodity volume to gain better prices which otherwise could not be achieved. Some contracts are available only to the universities while others are available to all Regent Institutions and other State of Iowa Agencies.

Following is a listing of all current Joint Regent Contracts which show commodity item, lead agency, vendor, availability and contract manager responsible for each contact.
