Sourcewell, a leading national service cooperative created by the Minnesota legislature to establish and administer contract purchasing solutions for state and local governments, notified Blauer of its intent to award in early May after review of Blauer's proposal to provide access to its uniforms and related services to Sourcewell's 50,000 participating government and public safety entities.  A formal agreement was executed between Sourcewell and Blauer on May 31 and Blauer's entire catalog and related customization services are now available to Sourcewell members at pre-negotiated contract prices.
