The Joint Purchasing Board (JPB) was created by Resolution 2005-05 allowing the City of Lafayette and Tippecanoe County Government to combine purchasing roles and efforts in a uniform manner.

In general, both agencies combine their purchasing efforts on product and material when like commodities are utilized by both agencies; hence, allowing 1 or more vendors the opportunity to supply product or material to both agencies under an awarded contract agreement.
