Cooperative agreements are competitively bid contracts awarded in accordance with governmental purchasing statutes and policies. They provide a contract vehicle for state and local political subdivisions to purchase from, where allowed by state statute. Participation within a cooperative contract agreement must be determined by the state and local government customer.

In most cases, customers join a cooperative contract agreement by signing a participating addendum. Any additional local requirements, or terms and conditions must be entered into by a supplemental agreement, which would be between VWR and the participating entity. For additional information about cooperative contracts that may be available to a state or local government entity, contact your local representative, or email us at
