Cooperation for Cost-Effectiveness in Purchasing.
Dorger, Mitch
New Directions for Higher Education, n106 p67-78 Sum 1999
One way colleges can approach cost control is by taking advantages of cooperative purchasing activities with other, similar institutions. Guiding principles for effective efforts include sharing the risk, sharing the resources, providing services to other institutions, and expanding institutional bargaining power through cooperation. Significant pitfalls and techniques for success are outlined. (Author/MSE)
