Survival Through Regionalization: Effective Models for Intergovernmental Cooperation and Group Purchasing

All local governments want to save time and money in the procurement of goods and the provision of public services.

Regionalization, whereby two or more units of government work together to solve problems and seek common solutions, is clearly gaining in importance across New Hampshire as a successful approach for governmental efficiency. The term “regionalization” is also commonly referred to as inter-municipal, inter-local, or inter-governmental sharing arrangements or agreements.
