About Us

NPPGov National Buying Cooperative

NPPGov is a national cooperative procurement organization offering publicly solicited contracts to government entities nationwide. Our contracts are created through a public solicitation and award process by a Lead Public Agency.

We serve a variety of Government and Nonprofit organizations. Public Safety GPO and Law Enforcement GPO are programs of NPPGov with contracts that focus on Fire/Rescue and Law Enforcement members’ needs. All members have access to a broad range of publicly solicited contracts along with individual discount programs and negotiated contracts for below threshold purchases.

How does NPPGov buying cooperative work?

NPPGov uses a Lead Public Agency to publicly solicit and award contracts through a Request for Proposal process. Our members are eligible to access these contracts by signing an intergovernmental agreement with the Lead Public Agency, thereby eliminating the need to complete their own RFP process. NPPGov staff and legal counsel facilitate this process and provide necessary documentation and support.

I must conduct an RFP process or at least have three quotes. How does NPPGov satisfy this requirement?

Our contracts are created through an RFP process meeting the requirements of all lower and upper purchasing threshold requirements. The process includes local and national print advertising as well as online internet services to post RFP solicitations. By piggybacking off the contract you are eliminating the need to conduct your own solicitation or collect three quotes. Agency membership is free and there are no minimum purchasing obligations.
