Connecticut Fire Chiefs Association Partners with NPPGov Public Safety GPO
This relationship will provide the Connecticut Fire Chiefs Association’s access to 100 publicly procured agreements for products and services, along with a discount program for their individual members from over 20 vendors such as AT&T FirstNet, Pierce, MES, LN Curtis and Zoll.
Public Safety GPO is a program of NPPGov providing a public safety department access to publicly solicited contracts from vendors who supply goods and services. Contracts are created through a public RFP process by a Lead Public Agency that allows members to “piggyback” on the contract, eliminating the need to complete their own RFP process. Public Safety GPO staff and legal counsel facilitate this process and provide necessary documentation and support.
Public Safety GPO 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. Public Safety GPO 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.
