You can get the industry’s best turf surfacing system through the state of Pennsylvania’s cooperative purchasing program COSTARS. This is a statewide agency exclusive to Pennsylvania that has awarded a purchasing contract for recreational Items that you can use – which satisfies your local bid requirements – to purchase an A-Turf athletic field.
This contract is available to public entities located throughout the state – from schools to park districts – simply by registering online with the Pennsylvania Department of General Services.
FACT: COSTARS membership enables you to buy from A-Turf at competitive bid-level prices.
COSTARS is AVAILABLE TO PUBLIC ENTITIES – from schools to park districts throughout Pennsylvania. This is not going “around” your bid process. COSTARS already went “through” the required bid process.
BENEFIT: COSTARS contracts save you and your entity considerable time and money.
COSTARS members purchase products and services at a reduced cost through contracts without duplicating their own competitive bidding process and requirements, because COSTARS has already evaluated and awarded contracts through their own solicitation process.
ACTION: It takes only minutes to complete a no-cost, no-obligation, no-liability COSTARS membership.
COSTARS serves as a conduit through which Pennsylvania registered and eligible local public procurement units (LPPUs) and state-affiliated entities (Members) are able to leverage contracts established by DGS to cost effectively and efficiently engage in cooperative purchasing. Any purchase of A-Turf products and services may be handled directly with A-Turf under our COSTARS Awarded Contract for Recreational & Fitness Equipment (Sports Turf) #014-177.
