About Us

The Colorado Multiple Assembly of Procurement Officials (MAPO) was established in 1989 as a cooperative association allowing public procurement professionals to collectively issue solicitations for goods and services commonly required by Colorado local government agencies, and to make purchases based on existing agreements.

These collective agreements afford more cost-effective pricing and a greater level of value for the state's taxpayers. Our cooperative agreements include a variety of good and services.

MAPO operates in accordance with the legal, professional and ethical standards established by the State of Colorado and NIGP, the Institute for Public Procurement.

Our members work closely with other Colorado procurement groups including:

  • The State of Colorado Purchasing Office
  • Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT)
  • Rocky Mountain Governmental Purchasing Association (RMGPA)
  • Cooperative Educational Purchasing Council (CEPC)

If your agency is not currently a member of MAPO, we invite you to join us.
