U.S Communities has been SOLD. I have to immediately work with the new owners, and remove roofing from their list of offerings. USC fronts for Garland, and now that U.S. Communities is out of the way, perhaps the new owners will listen to reason.
ROOFING does not belong in a Purchasing Cooperative's list of offerings, and it's also a reckless scam that cannot be supported.
I am very happy to bring you this news, and will report back after speaking to OMNIA's leadership team.
While I remain optimistic, will give them the chance to be heroes. If they fail to negotiate in good faith, I'll let you know. The BOD may be impossible to reach, as they normally are, but I'll get there.
Copy and paste for full article:
Most of this drivel is "cookie cutter" language of Purchasing Cooperatives who are 100% against fair, open, competition, and bidding. It is doubtful they can summon the decency to stop stealing from our schools through Garland, Ind.
U.S. Communities have been a recurring nightmare, but maybe OMNIA management can understand the risk involved?
