Who we are

The Capitol Region Purchasing Council was created in 1968 in response to CRCOG member towns’ needs for regional procurement of common goods and services. Today, we serve over 100 municipalities, Board of Education and other government entities in the State of Connecticut. Operating under the auspices of the Capitol Region Council of Governments, the CRPC functions as both a supplemental procurement office for its member municipalities and as a central clearinghouse for the collection and distribution of purchasing-related information and expertise.

How our bid process works

For our annual and biennial bids, CRPC  solicits requirements from our members, puts the bid specification together, advertises the bid to the vendor community through our e-procurement system, newspaper advertisements, and on the CT DAS Procurement Portal, opens the bid and puts together a bid tabulation.

The CRPC does not make awards for our annual/biennial bids. Our members make their own awards based on which vendor is the lowest responsible, responsive vendor for their particular needs.

Municipalities and other government entities – interested in joining the CRPC?
