Group purchasing engine for the fire service program of NPPGov
FireRescue GPO is a program of NPPGov providing fire departments access to publicly solicited contracts from vendors who supply goods and services to the fire service. 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. FireRescue GPO staff and legal counsel facilitate this process and provide necessary documentation and support.
Access to our cooperative contracts is complimentary with no purchasing obligations. Membership is available to organizations chartered to provide fire and rescue services and their members including: career, volunteer, districts and state agencies. Individual firefighter discounts are also available.
In addition to saving you time and money, the program generates revenue for the fire chiefs association where the purchase was made including the IAFC, IAFC Division Association and State Chief Associations.
How it works
NPPGov uses a Lead Public Agency to solicit and award contracts through a public Request for Proposal process. “Piggybacking” language is inserted into the RFP and resulting contract, allowing members to utilize these contracts for public procurement purchases.
