The National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA) contract will allow Volvo Construction Equipment to better serve state and municipal customers by streamlining access to equipment from the entire Volvo product line.
The NJPA is a public agency that serves as a member-focused cooperative for over 50,000 member agencies throughout the United States, as well as Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario, Canada. The agency administers cooperative purchasing contracts that allow states and municipalities to purchase equipment without having to go through their own solicitation process. The contract comes as Volvo increasingly serves government customers, seeing its governmental business through buying contracts more than double year to year since 2012.
Members of NJPA and contract holders save time and cost in several ways. An NJPA contract eliminates the need by municipalities to duplicate individual solicitation and contracting processes as this has been completed and satisfied on behalf of NJPA members or agencies. The contract ensures the most competitive pricing available. Additionally, membership for government customers is free of charge.
Cooperative purchasing contracts, sometimes known as buying contracts, are competitively solicited in response to requests for proposals. The contracts are in compliance with states’ statutes that allow municipalities to procure goods and services with other government entities without having to go through their own solicitation process.For more information on NJPA and to access the full line-up of Volvo equipment made available through the agency, visit www.njpacoop.org.
