Euna, Pavilion Join Tech Forces on Cooperative Contracts

As technology improves in the cooperative contract space, Euna said it will integrate with the Pavilion platform. That could mean quicker, more efficient access to more suppliers for gov tech buyers.

The world of cooperative contracts has produced a new partnership, one designed to give government technology buyers wider access to suppliers.

Euna Solutions (formerly called GTY Technology) will team with Pavilion (formerly CoProcure) on a platform integration.

Specifically, Pavilion's database of shareable contracts can now be found on the Euna Procure platform, a suite of eProcurement solutions, according to a statement announcing the deal.

Euna Procure includes more than 700,000 suppliers.

The Pavilion deal gives officials access to more than 100,000 shareable contracts from more than 400 entities. This means technology buyers can use the combined database to more efficiently find cooperative and piggyback contracts as well as purchase tools without starting a new solicitation process, according to the statement.

“As public entities look to do more with less, we’re developing new ways to support procurement professionals in doing their most critical work,” said Mariel Reed, Pavilion's co-founder and CEO, in the statement. “This partnership creates a more seamless experience for Euna Procure users to find, use and share contracts with other public entities so they can deliver better, faster services and drive greater impact for their communities.”

Evidence for the growth of cooperative contracting and the technology associated with it come from last year’s $22 million funding round for Pavilion (then still operating as CoProcure). The young online marketplace for vendors and buyers of government technology and other goods and services said at the time that it was growing by more than 35 percent quarter over quarter.

The main idea behind bringing more technology and funding to this space is to build a more robust central point for government tech buyers to locate vendors, Reed said at the time. That goal also animates the new deal with Euna.
