NPPGov Partners with the Association of Idaho Cities
SEATTLE, WA – NPPGov is proud to announce a direct partnership with the Association of Idaho Cities (AIC). NPPGov is a national cooperative procurement organization offering publicly-solicited contracts to government entities nationwide.
Association of Idaho Cities Executive Director Kelley Packer has been working with Mika Kawakami, Association Manager for NPPGov, to provide competitive cooperative options to AIC members.
NPPGov currently offers over 100 publicly procured agreements for products and services, along with a discount program for individual members from over 20 vendors, including AT&T FirstNet, Medline, McKesson, Zoll and more.
“The Association of Idaho Cities is excited to partner directly with NPPGov to offer our members departmental and individual discounts, which will save them time and money on products they use every day. We feel a direct relationship with NPPGov is in the best interest for the members of the AIC,” said Packer.
The Association of Idaho Cities was formed in 1947 and is a nonpartisan, nonprofit corporation that serves Idaho’s 199 cities. AIC advocates on behalf of its member cities, and provides education, training, and assistance to strengthen the ability of city elected officials and staff to serve their communities.
“We see a real need to offer organizations, like the Association of Idaho Cities, the opportunity to secure national contracted pricing based on the buying power of our 45,000 public entity members,” said Bill DeMars, Executive Director of NPPGov.
NPPGov offers a robust revenue sharing program for qualifying partner organizations. Through the NPPGov share back program, association partners can earn a quarterly revenue share based on membership spend.
NPPGov is a national cooperative procurement organization offering publicly solicited contracts to public safety departments nationwide. NPPGov contracts are created through a public RFP process by a Lead Public Agency, allowing members to “piggyback” on the contracts, thus eliminating the need to complete their own RFP process. NPPGov staff and legal counsel facilitate the process, providing necessary documentation and support.
NPPGov membership is free with no obligation to purchase. All members have access to a broad range of publicly solicited contracts with discounted pricing, as well as individual discount programs. NPPGov is owned by non-profit hospitals and a substantial portion of proceeds help support medical research at Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason (BRI) in Seattle, WA.
