The U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance recently honored Dakota County for being a national leader in saving taxpayer money through cooperative purchasing.
U.S. Communities selected Dakota County as a recipient of the 2016 Customer Appreciation Award, which recognizes government and non-profit agencies that utilize purchasing cooperatives in order to save money. Chris Oltmanns, program manager for U.S. Communities, presented the award to the procurement team, part of the Financial Services Department.
Dakota County was selected, along with 48 other agencies nationwide, out of more than 55,000 U.S. Communities participating agencies.
