Orange County Purchasing Alliance (OCPA)

The OC Purchasing Alliance (OCPA) is a partnership between the County of Orange and participating Cities and Special Districts. OCPA participants are committed to ensuring that each tax dollar is spent wisely and in the most fiscally responsible manner utilizing principles of fairness and open competition. To that end, OCPA participants seek to maximize purchasing power by increasing economies of scale, creating opportunities to coordinate purchases for commonly purchased items and receiving the lowest possible price from the general market.

This is accomplished by fostering collaboration among participating entities to coordinate purchases and promote cooperation between all public sector agencies. Participants will strive to create cooperative purchasing arrangements that may be used by all participants and shall regularly meet to communicate information on new opportunities.
